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

the west end of the cucumber wall has a decided yellowish cast from all te ,rain last month...cukes are such a water loving plant that i cannot remember seeing so much yellowing on them...i begin to wonder about drainage on that end of the bed ( east end green as could be )...but the bigger news is the first bloom have appeared and so the cucumber wall is beginning to serve its purpose...perhaps a wealth of hanging, growing cukes will take some of the water stress off the plants...we can hope...we can also hope for a bumper crop of slicing cucumbers just from the sheer numbers of plants...nine plants produced more than we could eat last season...we have many more this year...my thoughts are "help yourself "
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.
