My experience only, I can’t speak for others.

I should note that I grew up in the neighborhood of Frogtown in St Paul where my dad had tilled up the entire back yard and planted a Victory Garden from porch to garage. There was constant weeding, watering, picking and canning from May through September. I got the tomato-growing, pickling, canning skills to survive a famine but there is no way in hell I will ever grow my own food or garden for pleasure.
