Farmhand Garments Slated for Field Testing

I started to learn how to farm in the late spring and summer. If the sun was high in the sky and shining brightly, a farming trick of the trade that I learned from Farmer Frank was to wear a loose-fitting dress shirt.

I got some hand-me-down dress shirts at the thrift store and even wore some from my office-job days. These loose-fitting dress shirt were indeed comfortable.

Now it is fall. Radiant bunnies are warm in their hutches lined with belly fur. The life in the compost pile is colder. Those loose-fitting dress shirts are stored away. It is the season of wool and down and capilene and nano puff. Which is to say, the aim here is to field test Patagonia clothes on the farm. Here is the checklist of what is to be tested in the coming months:
