    I keep my gardening boots and wellies down the plot and change into them there, just sometimes, especially after a hard day I forget to change back again.🤪
    I may be hungry but I sure ainít weird

    Wrap an old hessian or even plastic bag cut into a 3inch strip round your ankles similar to the gaiters but cheaper
    it may be a struggle to reach the top, but once your over the hill your problems start.

    I've given up trying to keep my feet and socks clean, every time I dig with a spade I manage to fill a wellie with whatever. Was thinking of going barefoot but don't think it would be much fun during the winter and I aint no Hobbit.

    At the last count when I was re-bagging all the wood chip down the lottie I must of emptied one of my wellies at least 6 times, luckily the socks were bought from aldi from their workwear range so they are durable and thick enough to manage to be washed so much.

    My wellies have a firm base and neoprene upper - fit close to the calf so nothing gets down. In summer I wear rubber clogs and just accept the dirt.....
