The perfect ski pants for a gardener like me

Yesterday, while waiting in line for a beer at Blackcomb, I stood behind a guy wearing the most shockingly incredible Helly Hansen ski pants:  they had a pattern of hot pink martini glasses balanced out by silhouettes of grey tractors, all on a glaring white background.  So bizarre and visual – I couldn’t believe it.  So I said “Hey! Wow! Those are amazing pants!”.

He said, “Uh……..pardon?”

“Those pants! They tell me that you are a martini-drinking farmer!” I said. “Or an alcoholic gardener!” So, the guy (who was about 50 with good hair) turns around, kind of squints at me and says “Uh, yeah”.  He changed the subject by asking if I was “skinning the back” (at first I didn’t know what he was asking so I said “Uh….pardon?”) and then we had a good conversation about  back country sking.

For the rest of the afternoon, I kept thinking about how those pants would be ideal for a martini-drinking gardener like myself.  Tried to find some on the internet today, but I wasn’t successful; I couldn’t even find the pattern to include in the blog.

One less epic fashion crime…I guess.

    So glad you liked my blog about growing onions, organically on . I love your blog, too and just shared it with my Linked In group – Grow Girls Grow Organic! The post on growing year round was wonderful.

      Thanks so much – what a lovely compliment! I’ve been learning a lot from reading your blog, although I have to admit that I am much less methodical than you are! I will look for your linked in group – although my linked in identity is somewhat different…
      I hope spring has started where you are…
