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

the community has found and harvested the german butterballs ( i took the spuds from one ) and so garden space is coming open...we have decided to plant crops for fall harvest and since i had lots of detroit red beet seeds ( heirloom form native seed search ) i planted sixteen clusters of seeds in what was once potato country...beet seeds are in clusters so multiple plants will come up from each...so...much as i dislike it...there will be thinning of smaller plants in the days ahead...if all goes well there will be beets in a couple of months...more as the fall seeds arrive.
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.
