Mucking around in (what else) Muck Boots
When it's time to muck out the goat stalls or the chicken house or turn the compost pile, the footwear of choice at GardenSnob are Muck Boots (available at Amazon for $79.95). Don't bother with the knock off brands. They just won't last. These boots keep your feet warm during the coldest winter day with just one pair of socks. They are not overly hot in the summer either considering their heavy duty construction. We have the mid-height ones and wear them every day of the year. The short ones, however, are a different story. They are green and have a white inner liner for the first 5". So much hay gets stuck on this liner that it's as if they are lined with hay. It must be the "breathable airmesh lining". What a bummer! I've stopped using them because they are just too annoying. The hay pokes through any socks I'm wearing and also sticks to the socks which means one more step after taking off the muck boots and putting my house shoes on - picking the hay off my socks. If you don't work with hay, it probably won't affect you but if you mulch your garden with hay in the fall, save some time for picking the hay off the boot liner.
