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

the season will doubtlessly end...that is the way of things...but for now overwintering green manures aren't all that's going on out there...there are quite a few garlic plants up and running ( top photo with some winter vetch off to the left ) with lengthening leaves supporting root growth...after a killing frost these will be mulched with about a six inch layer of straw held in place with fabric to keep the roots safe over the winter...the beans are still flowering and still producing ( second photo )...and so are the jalepeno peppers ( third photo ) and bell peppers ( fourth photo ) ...harvest them while you can.
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.
