    I am doing gardening. "doing" is not necessary.
    I am doing shopping. "doing" is not necessary.
    I am going to shopping. "to" is not necessary.
    If you add "the" after "doing" in the first two, they are OK.

    So I can say:

    I am doing the gardening or I am gardening
    I am doing the shopping or I am shopping
    I am going shopping.

    Am I right?

    Thank you very much ^_^
