Some years ago I was in fishing , then Mountain biking  and almost one year now I am in gardening ( I still go for fishing or a biking ride in a near mountain) . I always knew that my relationship with earth , dirt , and plants provide me something that is missing in my day routine. I always loved plucking weeds in my fields , and changing the landscape. Almost one year ago I realized that I like to plant seeds , to make them germinate and hybridization . I tried many seeds from China , and some from my yard or neighbors. And today I have more than 150 new plants (various climates (purple , blue , red) , roses (climbing , dark red) , passion flower ( granadilla , incarnata) , climbing hydrangea , and some blue / white and black / yellow hibiscus.
Its great to read from Internet how to treat them and try my own methods as well. But when you see a new seed germinating and growing into something new its really awarding.

It's seasonal. In the winter I like cross-country skiing. In the spring and fall it's roller skating, and in the summer it's biking and canoeing. And, of course, reading all year round.

Mostly running, for few hours, 4 times per week, it's my break from everything. About plants, I don't have a garden anymore, but I have a small room with a French window exposed to south, I use it as a small greenhouse, with some plants... last year I grew up four avocado plants from seeds, one of these is now 2mt tall, I didn't expected such results. Now I want to try with a mango or something else outlandish.

Cooking. Reading (hard science and shite thrillers). Learning Italian (off and on).

Learning/playing guitar. I've been able to strum along with sing-song stuff since I was a teenager, but now I have more time I'm learning to play proper Jazz guitar.

It's really hard, but it does give me a perfect excuse to buy all kinds of super gear... guitars, amps , effects, iPad software etc.

Looks like it's going to be skiing again. Got snow yesterday and more coming on Monday.

I don't know if it is exactly a hobby as most people would define it, but lately I've been reading about DNA and molecular biology. What I find fascinating is the similarity between DNA (the code that makes our bodies what they are) and computer software. If anyone who happens to read this is slightly interested, I recommend "DNA seen through the eyes of a coder",
