'It must be admitted that one of the great drawbacks to gardening and weeding is the state into which the hands and fingers get. Unfortunately, one's hands belong not only to oneself, but to the family, who do not scruple to tell the gardening amateur that her appearance is "revolting".'

From "Pot pourri from a Surrey Garden", by Mrs C. W. Earle 1897

....and having lifted my garlic crop at the weekend I fall into the "revolting" category!
