If feet freak you out, don't read this post!
Who else suffers from this? It usually appears at the same time as tomato fingers, which is the dirt and green that is ground into the fingers from tying and pruning tomatoes.
Today I decided enough! Instead of settling for the usual shower scrub, after the day I had I opted for a foot soak in the kid's tub and a good scrubbin'!
Finn came in and saw me perched on the edge of his tub with my feet dripping permadirt on his tub walls and said "ewwww, gross, MOM, go in your own bathroom! But I don't have a tub in mine, and I'm too short to stick my feet in the sink and stay upright!
One scrub brush, mint soap & scrub and pumice stone later, voila! Apparently it does come off, who knew?!
But apparently the flip flop tan is real!
That was pretty much the best part of the day. I will say that our weather is beautiful, lower 80's and no humidity, nice breeze - that made working in the garden all day very bearable. The work today however, was pretty traumatic. Today was tomato blight day, and I spent the entire day trimming, spraying and disinfecting, hoping for the best. A little too traumatic to post photos of it actually, maybe tomorrow.
"almost ooops!" - I had this combined with my other post today until I realized that the shop I urged people to visit was listed and I surely don't want anyone googling their shop and seeing my permadirt feet instead :)
