Gardening is my primary form of exercise in any season. It's cross-training at its best. For cardio, there's dragging a tarp full of blackberry canes across the field to the burning pile. For strength and cardio mixed, there's digging, sawing, pruning, shoveling mulch, etc. I prefer this to any gym workout. It smells better, sounds better (birdsong instead of grunts), and I get to accomplish two things a once - shaping up my body as I shape up my garden, which produces the organic food I use to feed this body.
