Organic rather than transgenetic.
Labor instead of chemicals.
Diversity in place of monoculture.

under the light ( across form the dryer )
there's more going on than i expected actually...the asparagus plant that i transplanted to its own pot ( second photo ) two days ago is growing well and a third asparagus plant ( third photo ) has emerged from the pot that i tossed a number of seeds into...so there's hope for growing a second generation asparagus bed in the iuncg from seed taken form the pgp asparagus...the soybean (fourth photo ) is growing sideways...i am assuming form it height being disproportionate to the ability of its stem to support its weight...but it is still deploying another tier of leaves so it may survive yet...the oldest asparagus plant (fourth photo ) has slowed its vertical growth and will ( i hope ) begin to build a root system...i am going out on a limb here and calling the maize plant a hopi blue ( top photo )...it looks remarkably like the plants that germinated on campus last may...those got to be around eight feet tall and i worry about its disposition indoors if it thrives...the acacia may have competition for floor space.
an industrial worker and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
