Hipster horticulture: More young men dig into gardening

More men in their 20s are getting involved in gardening with many growing their own hops. 

Garrett Hoffman, 28, doesn't have a yard. But he was determined to have a garden. "This is my first apartment ever with outdoor space," said Hoffman, who grows tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, chard and herbs on his St. Paul balcony. Hoffman's "small but mighty" garden helps the University of Minnesota researcher and graduate student stretch his food budget, he said.
