When I'm gardening, I only track it when I'm doing the heavy stuff; digging, hoeing, pulling weeds, etc. If I'm just spraying things or picking vegetables, it's just bonus movement, and I don't count it as exercise.

If this is a fairly regular activity I would just put yourself as "lightly active" on your account. Then you can just count planned exercise in your fitness tracker.

I work in my garden for hours some days weeding and harvesting. I'm concerned the fitness tracker calculates too many calories burned for these chores.What I do doesn't get my heart rate up but I do feel it in my muscles. Should I track less time in the garden or is this correct?
