The Dirt on Calories

I have been so busy in the yard this week and I was wondering how many calories you burn while playing in the dirt? To my surprise you burn a lot! Gardening for 1 hour burns 272 calories! Shoveling dirt burns 341! This is good! I enjoy being outside and planting a garden is the perfect exercise in my eyes. It’s rewarding to watch your plants and vegetables grow, and I bet you’re more likely to eat your vegi’s if they were fresh from the garden.

Here are some pictures of the tree’s I planted this week. I’m not done!
