If you’re new here, welcome! To receive The Weekly Dirt in your inbox every week… Hi, guys! Don’t you hate when people use expert-level words and phrases to describe ordinary things? It seems every field of interest has its version of this, from medical jargon and legalese to sports lingo like tennis’ “love” and golf’s “birdie.” Outsiders, no matter how well-educated or intelligent, can’t possibly understand what’s being described. And as it happens, gardening is no exception.
Hi Jessica: I need garden gloves that I can wash. I have a ton of poison ivy, poison oak in my yard. When I was gardening I had the poison on my gloves (not knowing) when I took them off and put them on the uroisol in the poison ivy was on my skin. I need to wash my gloves each time in hot water. Any suggestions?????
