Exam Gloves in the Garden

For those weeds that have tiny stems and are hard to grasp with regular gardening gloves, I use nitrile disposable exam gloves. Although I'm not allergic to latex I prefer the nitrile gloves.

For those weeds, you might try breaking them and bending them over as ground cover and mulch rather than spend your day weeding.

Nitrile or latex are the BEST for handweeding.

@gingin Sorry I missed your post. Just remember they're not for thorns! Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious!
Any day you wake up on the sunny side of the grass is a good day.
