Dear Farm Journal,
Why is it always cold and rainy everytime we have to clean ramps or pick watercress? I don’t mind getting wet when it is hot out. It is actually a nice cooldown in the hot summer months, but on cool rainy days like this, my hands and feet go numb. I lose feeling in my fingertips and can’t negotiate the rubber bands around the produce. Not only that, but every time I pick watercress, my boots fill up with water and don’t dry out for two or three days. I am running into a bit of a footwear predicament here. I only have one pair of boots, and if my feet are going to be cold and wet, they might as well be naked too.
