Gardening and movies

Slate has a post about "What movies get wrong about gardening". The thoughts of digging around in the soil and watering some plants is quite warming right now:
If you own or work a plot of land, you are, like it or not, the director of a garden scene. Your garden reveals something of your income, your state of mind, your character, your taste. Even if that state of mind is "I don't care much," or "I care sporadically" (very common), or "I'm someone who hires a landscape service."
