This weekend, I'm happy to be hosting a random drawing for one lucky commenter to win a brand new pair of Daily Garden Shoes from Muck Boots.
If you are one of those readers who doesn't read beyond the first paragraph, I'll post the rules right up front before I go and on about my my love for my own Muck brand shoes.
To enter, please leave a comment by 9:00 PM EST on Sunday, October 12, that ties back to your blog, or if you don't have a blog, leave a comment with a valid email address. I need a way to contact you if you win! Anyone may enter, but enter only once, and shipping is free in the U.S. only.
Sometime after 9:00 PM EST on Sunday, October 12, I'll use a random number generator to generate a random number between one and however many comments there are, and then count down through the comments to that number to find the winner.
Geez, I've made that sound kind of complicated, and it isn't. Just comment to enter.
Anyway, let me tell you about my muck shoes. I don't have the actual Daily Garden Shoes, I have a pair of the Muskster Pet Lovers Muck Shoes. The irony of this is that I have a lot of garden, but no pets.
But I bought them at a garden center, and they assured me that I would love them to wear in the garden, and I do. They are comfortable to walk in all day long, and they keep my feet dry. And they are sturdy enough to use for most shoveling. I wear them for all kinds of activities, including mowing in slightly damp grass.
About the only thing I wouldn't wear them for is when I am using a roto-tiller. When I do that, I usually wear a pair of hiking boots, the kind with the red laces, that I bought when I was in college in the late 1970's. Everyone wore them back then. You just had to have a pair to be cool! Who knew that all these years later, I'd still have them and they would be in the garage patiently waiting for those rare times when I actually use the roto-tiller.
But I am digressing. Feet are an important tool for gardening. If your feet aren't dry and comfortable, it is hard to do much in the garden. Just ask Kathy from Cold Climate Gardening and she'll agree, if your feet hurt, you aren't going to be able to do much gardening.
Gardening? Oh, yes, that's what I'm going to do today, so if you'll excuse me now, I'm going out to put on my own Muck shoes and head out to the garden.
Before you go out to your garden, be sure and leave a comment to enter the drawing before 9:00 PM on Sunday, October 12. Good luck, and happy gardening!
Update Sunday Evening...
Congrats to commenter #8, Vertie, who has just won a pair of Daily Garden Shoes!
