"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."

"Manly is about a set of values, about caring and providing for your family, about leaning out to help people less fortunate than yourself, giving and not reflecting on what returns to you. If you do all of that you are a man who can hold his head…"

Tim replied to Chris Badgett's discussion Can I Get Your Opinion on Something ... Is Gardening Manly?
"I think if you feel the need to ask, the answer is no. Not because any particular thing is manly or not - but because you already have formed an opinion, and going against that can cause you to question yourself more than needed."

"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."
