Tomato Hands

Yesterday, I spent a lot of time picking suckers off the tomato plants.  I didn't realize quite how staining tomato plant juice can be!  These photos are after multiple scrubbings and washings. You can bet I'll wear gloves next time!

I've spent the past few weeks planting and digging into the earth to plant seeds that will grow healthy and clean food for myself and others.  These hands may be rough, ripped up, and sadly in need of a manicure, but these are the hands of a gardener!

  1. I had tomato hands yesterday too, from working with the all caged tomato vines. Like you, it took repeated scrubbing with our homemade pumice soap to get it all off. It will be worth it though when the tomatoes start coming on!
