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

just a quick tour of some sights out back that have some late season green going on...part of the husk on the teosinte ear in the first photo had pulled back exposing the immature seed...tomorrow night and wednesday there is a possibility of frost so these will be covered along with the ears in the second photo...mature seed is the hopeful objective...garlic is up everywhere ( third photo )...there will be heavy mulching ahead...the winter vetch in the fourth photo is blooming among the new zealand white clover and the winter rye...nitrogen going in now...organic matter in the spring...finally the alfalfa in the fifth photo is developing more leaves and the leaf litter form the locust trees is mulching the ground...another fertile patch being prepared for spring...winding down, but not over.
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.
