Dirty Secret - I Hate Gardening
"What?!? You don't enjoy digging in the dirt? It's such a satisfying, healthy and noble pursuit!
But to tell the truth, I would much rather be doing just about anything other than digging in the dirt. It's not just a lot of work, either. To me, gardening feels artificial. It's a way of coercing nature into growing what we want where we want it.
Houseplants bother me, too. There is nothing sadder that a potted plant in a house. Don't plants belong outside with other plants? Not crammed into a pot and dependent on me to remember when to water. I don't usually get that right and they wilt.
That's why I like foraging. You can leave nature alone and accept what happens to be around at the time. Nature knows far more than I ever will about tending to plants - so I decorate my house with plastic imitations and have lunch on the lawn.
