I both garden & game happily. Didn't do vegetables this year, because I finally realized we don't eat much of what we grow, and we have a great locally owned fruit & vegetable market within a mile which I go to weekly.Originally Posted by jpinard
I still plant a lot of herbs, though, because those are pricey in markets. And since I threw out my manliness card long ago, I freely admit enjoying planting mixed shrub and perennial gardens. One of the great things about the hobby is that you don't have to upgrade like you do with computer hardware. I can take a year off from tinkering with new layouts and buying more plants, which allows the existing plants to fill in more, giving me more stuff to split or trade at the end of the season.
