There's a parenting analogy here somewhere.

Here's why gardening is so satisfying:
You put the plants where you want them.
You can cage many of them, and tie others to stakes to ensure proper growth.
It's approximately a one-hour-per-day commitment.
Water daily.
Feed weekly.
Allow time to grow.
Shelter from cold.
Protect from pests.
Produce fruits.
Take the winter off.

Sounds exactly like parenting...especially the cage part. I did not just say that.

Hahaha! When you put it that way, gardening may just be the break I need from parenting a toddler who never listens.

But, at the end...you eat it...so not so close as you might think.
