I know what you’re thinking…cool season vegetables and microscope work and educational outcomes are all very well and good, but what are garden educators wearing this season?
It’s a slow news week in the garden, so let’s take a peek into my garden-forward wardrobe:
This tee represents the genre of conference souvenir. You’ll remember I loved my time at the Edible Schoolyard, so I love remembering it with this rooster.
Related to the conference shirt is the “organizations I support” look.
Ripped from Friday Night Lights, this tee makes people think I am a football fan. Which I am not. But I loved that show, and I love this sentiment.
Found on an internet search for gardening shirts. I couldn’t resist adding one more take on the “keep calm” craze.
Is there a day when we don’t need to remember this? A gift from a friend purchased at Sherry Horton’s gorgeous Julian shop, E. Barrett General Store.
My husband went to Peru and brought back a t-shirt with a drawing of a stuffed pepper, a local delicacy apparently. True love.
Purchased on the clearance table at the Monticello gift shop. I guess I’m one of the few that couldn’t resist a drawing of an eggplant— the most beautiful plant, according to Jefferson.
Another trip tee—this one from the Washington Mall during cherry blossom season.
Local food t-shirts work well in the garden.
Let’s not forget the event t-shirt—my go-to baseball-style shirt for our annual Food Day celebrations.
Naturally, I have a couple school spirit numbers:
And I’ve saved my favorite for last: a Tracey Allen original. This is “Choose Kindness.” See her lovely designs here!
In closing, I should mention that any of the above shirts can be paired with jeans and tennis shoes. Or a funky skirt and sandals. Hats optional, minimal accessories. The options are endless in the world of garden fashion!
