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

new garden I
the jerusalem artichokes are adding some more color to the garden and will continue to bloom through next month..and we will be deadheading the blooms as they die back...eventually the plants will signal tuber-readiness and we can check the harvest...and on the subject of harvest, pole beans have sprung up on the trellis along with cucumbers so we have a dual purpose trellis and that is just fine...there will be a bean bonanza as long as we continue to harvest regularly...i see green bean soup in a pot on the stove soon enough.
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.
