I about pinched myself last week when we had 80 degree weather in April!! I took full advantage of the early warm temps and got to work planting my herb garden. I love to cook healthy and fresh herbs are a staple at my house. My backyard is small but we have a raised garden bed that is perfect for growing herbs.
For the job, I put on my Duluth Trading Co. gear and got to work! I tested out the Longtail No Sweat Henley T-shirt, the Quick Dry Skort, and the Oil Cloth Day Tote. When I started my day, it was 74 degrees out and super sunny. The thermometer kept rising over 80 degrees so here is how I beat the heat with my Duluth Trading Co. gear!
To start my project, I made a run to my local garden center. I wore my gear and used the Oil Cloth Day Tote. I absolutely love this tote! It is so well made and has compartments for easy organization. It even has a built-in key fob and is water repellent. This is going to come in handy this summer! I already used it on a weekend trip too. I just unzipped the side zipper and it gave me more space to stuff it full of our travel essentials.
The Longtail No Sweat Henley T-shirt was extremely comfortable to work in. I loved the extra long length. I am 5’10 and it was plenty long on me. When I was out and about getting my plants and mulch, I tucked it into the Quick Dry Skort and belted it for more put together look.
As you can see here, for more comfort when working, I opted to work without the belt and untucked the No Sweat Henley. With all the bending, stretching, and sweating it was very comfortable indeed! You can see in the photo below how it covers even when I was bending over to do my plantings. No unsightly gaping here!
The Quick Dry Skort was also very comfortable. The waist moves with you and doesn’t feel confining at all. The cargo pockets are great and I kept my keys and gardening gloves in them.
I also liked the material of the clothing. The Longtail No Sweat Henley T-shirt is a jersey blend of comfy cotton and CoolMax polyester with antimicrobial and moisture-wicking performance. The Quick Dry Skort got dirt, water, sweat and mulch on it and stayed dry and was easy to clean. Both garments also have UPF sun protection and great freedom of movement.
Here’s my little herb garden ready to grow and supply us with our cooking essentials all summer long.
No garden is complete without a gnome. My boys affectionately named him Cheese McBean. I really have no idea where they came up with that name!
