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

jerusalem artichokes ( relentless )
i have an affinity for root crops...i like to eat them but even if i didn't i'd want to grow them...and there is a special place for tubers...and there will be tubers this season in abundance...from the bewildering number and variety of andean tubers ( there are potatoes and mashua in this garden ) to the relentless native sunchokes they are a perennial favorite..the jeruasalem artichokes have vindicated my prediction with four day to spare...a burst of rainfall and warm weather saved me from the embarrassment of a public misstep...they are green, leafy, and growing daily...can't wait for the blooms...even more impatient for the tubers.
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.
