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

the purple valley spud in the top two photos has begun to sprout in a couple of places and looks to be the next likely candidate for cutting, callousing, and planting...but probably not for a few weeks...while those are coming along the early blue i planted last saturday are greening up and will be producing leaves soon enough( third through fifth photos...i just noticed several roots on the surface in the fourth photo ( all that white stuff...if you click on it you may be able to actually see root hairs off to the lower right of the stem )...so far the indoor seed potato project is up and running...i would expect casualties...i also expect enough tubers for spring planting of exceedingly local potatoes...i have many more photos of teosinte...i will refrain for now.
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.
