When scrabbling in the dirt in spring, I often long for badger claws. It would seem that I’m not the only one who ever thought of this, because now there are garden gloves with badger claws. Mine are the Garden Genie brand and I love them, especially for scratching seeds into the surface of wide beds and scratching mulch back from surfaces that I’m about to plant. They have claws on the right hand only. There is another brand, Honey Badger gloves, that are available with claws on the left hand or on both hands. In my view claws on both hands would be an impediment but then I haven’t tried them out.
I should also add that my old dog loves being very lightly scratched on the head with badger claws.
And here are some more crocuses, just because I can’t quit going on about them in early spring.
