    Farming, hunting, and trapshooting. I love farming but its more like work now.
    Human natural selection= just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself.

    Summer- flower, fruit and vegetable gardening.
    Winter- reading, planning the above, building computers, and playing with different Linux Operating Systems.

    Oh, I should include mowing. I mow so much it feels like it should be a hobby.

    I'm with Michael. Everything is interesting. Sometimes I divide it up between hobbies and passions. Even the passion list is long....

    Besides keeping bees, raising queens and nucs, while harvesting a little honey, my other hobbies include;

    Cultivating, propagating, and breeding carnivorous plants;

    Growing and propagating thirty varieties of bamboo on our acre in the desert;

    Growing several citrus varieties (Navel oranges, lemons, and grapefruit), two varieties of figs (Mission and Brown Turkey), and other assorted fruit trees;

    We grow a vegetable garden - year-round, mostly in fifteen gallon pots (so my wife can access them from her wheel chair);

    Woodworking, I build almost all my own bee equipment, but also anything else that is built of wood, including my own greenhouse;

    I am a computer technician, I build and repair PCs for myself and for family and friends - my day job used to be telephone tech support for Windows XP.

    I raise pharaoh quail for eggs and meat. I designed my own incubators (and the electronics), including one that can handle six hundred quail eggs at a time. I built the cages where the quail are kept.

    We raise koi in an old hot tub that is sunk into the ground in the shade of a Palo Verde tree and a Bambusa 'Hirose' bamboo.

    Maple Sugaring!!!
    Started this year. What a great little hobby to prep me for the new beekeeping season. Even though this spring wasn't great for sap flow I still enjoyed it.

    Can't wait until next February!

    Oh, of course I also enjoy the great outdoors. Golf, fishing, kayaking in the summer, snowshoeing, xc skiing, and of course downhill skiing in the winter. While at home I keep a veggie garden (my original reason for keeping bees) and driving around on my tractor!

    Yeah, I know what you mean. Since I started beekeeping, I've barely touched my bike. Only had it out a few times this spring/summer so far... plus, I dumped a good chunk of my hobby money into bee stuff, so I can't afford to do much to any of my bikes....

    I grow giant pumpkins, and farm alpacas. I am growing my pumpkins this year where our alpacas are boarded. We work out there a lot so we only have to pay for feed. As well as my pumpkins we are having a HUGE garden with our alpaca farmer friend that we put the tranplants in last night so there is now-

    61 tomatoes plants (10 ish varities)
    At the very least that many pepper plants (12 or 14 varities)
    25 squash plants of different kinds
    10 or 12 catinlope plants
    a few eggs plant
    a few cabbage
    a few rubarb
    we still have to plant from seed=
    green beans
    dry beans
    sweet corn\
    the list goes on
