One of the funnest things in life is touching, so when I garden I will not wear gloves so I can feel the plants, the soil, and the water.
I reach in and pull out some dried up leaves, and cut some in an effort to shape the beast.
As I was reaching the end of the clean up I punctured my finger with one of the sharp leaves.
I quickly puled out the piece of the plant.
But not all of it came out and my finger doubled in size. Was it an allergic reaction or infection...
The lesson, get out your pink gardening gloves when you feel compelled to clean the yuccas.
