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

touring the yard II
the winter rye and the spring wheat ( first and second photos respectively ) are beginning to show signs of advancing ripeness...the wheat is being grown for decorative purposes for the crafty people here but i will be hoarding the winter rye as seed for autumn cover crops in the gardens...( i will be sharing too..this will produce more than i can use )...fern's pod corn is looking hale today and , while there is no three sister's' guild in my yard because of predatory squirrels, there is a brace of squash plants out by the cucumber hills...crowded but thriving.
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.
