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

container gardening is not the normal mo around here but two evils (?) have collided to force me to take this step...1) i overbought seed potatoes ( and got some from the usda as well ) and, 2) i flat ran out of space...whether it wwas here, the community garden, the pgp, or a daughter's back yard space became suddenly unavailable...so i bought two shiny new containers ( to go with some that were already lying about )...drilled drainage holes...added compost and potatoes ( these are yukon gold ) and put hem out in phalanx on the south side of the house with some yema de huevos and ollalas that are already up and running in containers from the basement experimentation...they will compliment the patch of red pontiacs in the ground and will make suitable gifts if the need arises...they will succeed and they will produce...i just find it a bit unnatural.
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.
