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

fall green manures and friends
many alfalfa plants are sporting third leaves which is good news as the weather cools toward winter ( top photo )...there is some winter vetch ( second photo ) up as well in a couple of beds which means nitrogen will be produced in early spring...the one yellow pea plant that i have found is taking its sweet time about moving along...but ti is there, hopefully to be followed by more...farther along, there are still bean blossoms emerging so there is at least a possibility of more beans while the cooler weather has had no impact on wither the new zealand whit clover or the asparagus growing along with it...the season hangs on.
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.
