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

two more of the native seed search teosinte seeds from 2012 ( topp photo ) have come to the point of being transplanted ( second and third photos )...that makes five of six seeds that have germinated...and while i chose only darker seeds ( a denser germ i believe ) to attempt this with there are a multitude of them left so i think i am safe...i just put some of the seeds the coach returned to me ( thanks mik! ) in a peroxide soak so we will see what is up with them in a few days..the bottom two photos are of tesointe plants born of seeds i finished in my basement last fall and rescued from the mold in the baggie...six days in ad doing okay...one is looking a bit "leggy" to me but it has reached up nearly to the grow light it is under...hopefully that proximity will slow its vertical reach and let it concentrate on a bit more root.
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.
