"Yes, unless that baby is actually suckling off of your breast you are very much a man! If not then even manlier that you are gardening with your baby attached."

"     Exactly.      Like anything else, it's a time money trade-off. Once you get beyond a certain size, you'd better rent or own a tractor. After all, doesn't matter how much of a hammer swingin'…"

"I think so; I enjoy the whole package, agriculture, herbalism and botany. As Karl said, self-sufficiency is manly."

"Depends on how big your garden is and how much time you've got to take care of it."

"Fair enough.  I was thinking more "pruning with a chainsaw" or "tilling with a backhoe".  But, I'm not much of a gardener, anyway. JB"

"Heading out in the morning. Hoping to get to the Saltlick by 11, fill up on BBQ, then go backroads up to Fredericksburg, get some wine, then meander slowly on home looking at the flowers."

"Gardening is also a part of farming. There's alot of edible plants and flowers. So gardening is in my opinion manly because it could help you become self-sustained or survive in the wild."

""... though power tools can make most anything manlier.  Garden with horsepower.  Overkill is underrated." Rototillers are for pussies afraid of hard work, sweat and blisters. Pick, shovel and spade all the way, say I."

""Possibly" on the gardening -- though power tools can make most anything manlier.   I'm going to go with "no" on the breastfeeding baby sling, though.  No way I'd've worn one of those.   JB"

"I love my garden with all my heart and it is somewhere I can escape and no one comes near me because if they do I give them a job. I loved gardening with my sons and can't wait for my grandchildren to grow enough for me to initiate them in the…"

"I agree there are benefits to no till, fostering that community of microorganisms in the soil builds healthier plants and soil, and keeps the weeds down. However compaction is a farmers worst enemy, and it is constantly ongoing. So tilling, plowing,…"

"Well put and in full agreement; and especially felt since I am now retired and my wife still works (11 years younger than I) and I do all of the same and then some.  "

Steve Fine replied to Chris Badgett's discussion Can I Get Your Opinion on Something ... Is Gardening Manly?
"What activity, be it gardening, sewing, carpentry or cooking is not manly if done by a man who knows who and what he is? I shop for groceries, cook, do the dishes and sew and iron my own shirts.  Tell me I'm not manly  - just try"
