Labor instead of chemicals.
Diversity in place of monoculture.

the german butterballs may be coming to the end of their season but the maize cynthia ( that's her down at the bottom, hard at work )planted fifty-eight days ago is coming to fruition...corn flowers mean ears sooner or later and there are nascent ears on a few plants that have well developed flowers going on...are my eyes fooling me or do i detect some silk on the ear in the second photo? we'll see next trip our...i am a big fan of the zea family.."weedy ancestors" and domesticates alike..even the poor, genetically distorted dense yellow #2 isn't a complete pariah in my book...i just won't eat anything they make with it...but we are talking organic and heirloom here...and a skilled gardener too.
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.
