The Oxford English Dictionary [OED] defines Play as “ activity for enjoyment and recreation rather than a serious or practical purpose“.

I generally know what that means but ‘gardening’ isn’t really for enjoyment when there’s several acres of stuff to look after. Gardening on that scale is work without pay and the end result is sort of accomplishment rather than enjoyment, and definitely not recreation. Nonetheless, you’ll find it here in the ‘outdoor play‘ section.
