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

i had some spare time this evening because it rained last night and i did not need to water...so i wandered over to the old garden site just to see if there was anything remotely connected to last season still there...and, surprisingly, there was...despite the destruction of the old beds and the flattening of the house that was on the lot and vehicles driving over the lot and the grass being mowed there is some asparagus there...dead center in the second photo is a seedling that has come up from seed i left in a bed last autumn...it is the same seed that continues to germinate in the bed of my truck ( third photo ) and which hitchhiked over to the new garden in the soil we moved and came up there ( bottom photo )...it's unfortunate that it will not prosper
in the location that had been chosen for it last year...life is transitory...gardens are transitory...it is the way of things.
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.
