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

red inchelium garlic plants continue to pop up ( top photo )...fourteen in all now...we will be doing some heavy duty mulching here soon enough to insure the roots make it through the winter...they are cold hardy but we want to be sure...further along the beds i found a full ripened ear of what i thought was pod corn since it was at the end of the three sisters' bed that i planted pod corn seed in...so i harvested it and wandered over to the picnic table to husk it and, to my complete surprise, discovered it was a fully formed ear of twelve row apache red maize...amazing...the squirrels actually missed one...there is a stunted and deformed ear that i harvested earlier but this is the real mccoy...a bit of season end good news.
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.
