It's an interesting question @Meesh. I am indoors for the time being, and as such don't view growing cannabis as gardening, i view it as production. Much like brewing beer or baking bread. Very controlled environment, with as many variables controlled as possible. And i like that. I do not believe it has affected my gardening of other plants much, except for maybe exposure to the latest & greatest fertilizer technology.
When we lived in Ukraine I learned to grow food from my grandparents; also it was somewhat of a family duty to maintain an orchard and a potato patch. We actually had two of each in our family, so in my teenage years a significant portion of my summers was spent doing that, especially as my grandparents aged. For instance, to feed the family for the winter we maintained two plots of potatoes about 1/4 acre each. Hand-planted. Hand-harvested, hauled in a sidecar of an old motorbike. Parents working, so Happy was up, for a few days to a week, with a spade cultivating, then planting, then picking bugs and spraying, then harvesting, sorting, hauing, etc, etc. And apples, and cherries, and all sorts of other shit. Soooo much work. I did not have as much time to fuck around on summer holidays as other kids my age, and kinda hated the obligation, but loved spending summers in that village, so my relationship with gardening is complicated.
I know how, but prefer not to, when it comes to vegetables. My wife insists on keeping a veggie garden but she doesn't have the time, so the garden is always overgrown. And when I look at it i'm like "if I touch this, i'm gonna own this, and I don't wanna..."
I do, however, keep a herb garden because the shit's just so much better fresh. Rosemary, chives, cilantro, parsley, dill, many oreganos and thymes, mints, curry plant, bay leaf, basils.
With respect to keeping these herbs, cannabis probably benefited from my previous experience so far. But i can see that by paying a better attention to the medium and feed, I can probably reduce the footprint of my herb garden and maintain similar yields, which I will likely do, because the smaller the garden, the better for this guy
I did get suckered into planting some fruit trees, so i got a fig, apple, apricot, plum. Inherited raspberries with purchase of house, so I have been keeping them in check a little bit. There's some strawberries too that kid likes, a couple bushes of berries. Hmm. dammit. how did that happen? lol.
