Team Gloves, or No Gloves?

Is wearing gloves a necessity during your day in the garden? Or do you get right to work sans protection, to feel the earth in real time?

I am with @shadygreenthumb except I don't hide the fact that I play in the dirt often. My hands are just now getting clean of dirt. I do use a scrub brush, but still there are traces that just get stuck.

I too love to feel the earth and smell it on the hands. It is such a connection for me. It sounds hippy like, but it is one of the simple pleasures in life. The soil is alive. Embrace it!

No offense to team gloves. To each their own! I'm for team gardeners! Group hug Hurray!

No gloves. After a weekend of digging in dirt just finished an intensive moisturizing treatment yesterday so that I could return to work looking respectable; now they are good as new, slather on more moisturizer tonight.
