"I imagine there are some nancies who garden and some manly men who garden. Therefore, the answer is doing gardening doesn't make one manly or non-manly."

Tim replied to Chris Badgett's discussion Can I Get Your Opinion on Something ... Is Gardening Manly?

"Gardening is manly.  I love to garden.  You're essentially growing food in dirt... What's more manly than that?  Also its becoming a lost skill.  Not many people know how to do it."
