We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

Boots and I Miss Smith and Hawken

Years ago I bought a pair of red slip on gardening shoes from Smith and Hawken. I still have them and wear them when gardening in the vegetable garden. They can be hosed off and are perfect for my needs. Plus they do not slip off like gardening clogs.They are probably 15 years old.

Last week I was trimming our Serviceberry tree and my red slip ons were not going to cut it. It was exceptionally wet in the area and I needed boots. So I slipped on my snow boots. They got really muddy and I am in the process of still cleaning them off. So before I end up ruining my snow boots, I decided to order these gardening boots. Not only are they waterproof, but they are cute too.


  1. Oh, oh, oh my- those are cuter than CUTE- do tell please where you got them? Thank you!

  3. I bought them online from Target or Targeee :)

  4. Love them! I have never looked at them as I thought they might be hard to pull on and off. Are they?

  5. Lorie--Hi --I have not found them difficult to put on and take off. What I like about them is that I can hose them down when they get super muddy or dirty.
