  1. I rarely use sunscreens – not because I never go out, but because I’m a master of timing my excursions so I can be in the shade. For instance, tomorrow, weather permitting, I plan to weed my bird of paradise patch, which is on the E side of the house, thus, I plan my attack on those weeds for the afternoon.

    • Here in Texas, especially in the summer, if I can’t do it in the shade I probably won’t do it. I don’t use sunscreen as a rule, either. However, I’m thinking of getting a kayak in which case it will probably be necessary. Sunscreen prevents the Vitamin D action of the Sun so I don’t use it except in cases where I’ll be out there for extended periods.

      • I wear either sunglasses or my shooting glasses if I’m mowing the lawn since there are so many rocks. “Lawn” is a bit of an overstatement, it’s 90% weeds. I also wear a Rambo style sweatband to keep the sweat out of my eyes and occasionally a hat. Since my hair is mostly grey it doesn’t get too hot in the Sun. LOL.

      • We we had the herb farm and I needed to spend hours per day in the sun, I learned that I could put ice cubes in Paul’s worn out tube socks and tie one around my head, another around my neck, then add floppy hat. On 90′ 90% humidity days, that was the only thing I found that could keep me on my feet long enough to keep up.

      • Believe it or not, this area of FL is cooler and less humid in the summer than central SC was! It’s also more pleasant in the winter. Unfortunately, a lot of things that I would like to grow don’t survive in zone 9.

        I’ve heard a lot about the water shortage & draught in the SW… I keep thinking of Mesa Verde and wondering it the present climatic situation has happened, previously. And if so, if this is why Mesa Verde was abandoned.
