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

nestled in between the ollala and german butterball potatoes, the mashua seems to be doing well...a member of the nasturtium family domesticated by the incas ( they grew the flower we know as nasturtiums as a food crop as well ) and grown for the tubers it produces...i an told they have rather a peppery taste when raw that mellows when they are cooked and that the incas would freeze cooked ones with molasses as a treat...unsure of how they will react to the long photo period of a northwest indiana summer i am not pinning all my hopes on tuber production...but it would be neat.
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.
