I googled "calories burned 1 hour gardening" & that resulted in a fitday.com webpage stating 230 cals per hour. Even more interesting is that webpage has a calculator to enter weight age etc to get an even more specific calorie burn count. Hope this helps!

i questioned it too when i looked at it.. .. only because i love working in the garden, and i never really thought of burning calories while plowing or planting cabbage lol

I can imagine. Taking care of plants is never as easy as it seems.
