Can I Get Your Opinion on Something ... Is Gardening Manly?

I was thinking about gardening and how I think it would be better on so many levels if more men did it in today's world. It kind of seems like "gardening" is feminine and "farming" is masculine.

I have a website where we create online gardening course called Organic Life Guru. The majority of our instructors are men (Check out the bottom of the homepage to see what I mean) and the majority of our online gardening courses customers are women.

What's your take on this?

Can gardening be manly?

Self sufficiency is manly. 

Couldn't agree more.

it is as manly as it gets, some hard work proper gardening, i have known many amazing female gardeners and they are very physical strong wimmen after doing ti for only a short time and long term female gardeners could pull your fingers off your hand like pulling bbq chicken wings apart.

I have a friend who loves growing just flowers and all year long his garden is a pleasure to be in as he has it seasonally planned, he hasn't a feminine bone in his body and his garden attracts as much female admirers to him as the flowers do pollinating insects

I know a lot of strong female gardeners as well :-)

I always say, do what makes you happy. One of my greatest regrets about living in an apartment is I no longer have room for a garden, or even houseplants (it's a basement apartment). I've always loved gardening, whether for food or decoration. I can say this unequivocally; nothing in this world beats a homegrown summer tomato, still warm from the sun. In that respect, you have my answer.

There are some container garden options for apartment living. My wife made this video about that:

Here's the lesson from that: http://organiclifeguru.com/lesson/container-gardening/

No.  Women garden, men raise crops.  d;D

It is manly to grow food.  It is not manly to suck at the teat of Mother Earth.  I am man, Gaia is my bitch, not the other way around.

No need for an outsider to confirm it.

I thought you were in California, not Kentucky.

1.  No

2.  You've never been to Cali.
