Get your digs in with clawed garden gloves

By William Hageman, Chicago Tribune
Planting bulbs or seeds can be a tedious task, with boredom ranking right up there with the physical discomfort one experiences.
That's why the Honey Badger Garden Gloves are a double blessing — and just in time for fall bulb planting.
First, the glove has hard plastic claws attached to three fingers, which makes digging in the dirt easier and more precise than using a trowel. And second, it makes digging fun. Put on a shirt with dark green and red stripes and a fedora and pretend to be a latter-day Freddy Krueger as you claw your way into the ground, preparing a home for tulip, daffodil or hyacinth bulbs.
The green-and-blue gloves have a suggested retail price of $24.95 per pair (one clawed, one unclawed; the buyer can choose left- or right-hand claws). The gloves come in three sizes, are washable and are designed to last for more than 200 hours of use, says inventor Aaron Ohan. They have a nice snug fit and are made of a stretchy, rubbery fabric that allows for a good grip. And, when not in use outside, the clawed glove can probably give your dog the back scratch of a lifetime.
The gloves can be bought at Amazon (right glove with claws and left gloves with claws) and will be available at in late August.
