One of the bad side effects if you will of gardening is dirt under your fingernails.  No matter the fact I wear gardening gloves, wash my hands frequently, and take a shower after coming in from gardening, I frequently look at my hands the next day and am aghast that I have a little dirt under one or two of them.  It is kind of embarrassing, but I suppose it is a hazard of playing in the dirt. 
But you know what?  I don’t care.  It’s a small price to pay, I think, for the overall improved health that I can realize by growing and eating fresh food. Furthermore the gratification I get from seeing my garden take shape and grow, not to mention the stress relieving aspects which will help my overall well being, are much more rewarding than the small amount of embarrassment I get from having a little dirt under my fingernails.
