Gardening year-round is not for me – Toronto Star

2.An active sport. I know you don’t think of it as a sport, per se, but look at it this way: according to the ultimate authority— well, Wikipedia — the word sport comes from “the old French ‘desport,’ meaning ‘leisure.’ The oldest definition in English is from around 1300 and describes sport as, “Anything humans find amusing or entertaining.” Based strictly on this definition, gardening is as much a sport as hunting or fishing. Maybe a more civilized one at that: after all, we are not killing our play-things but rather planting and nurturing them, for the most part. And yes, at the end of the day, we can eat the spoils of our efforts too. In this regard gardening is the ultimate outdoor sport.
