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

another of the teosinte seeds from the 2012 native seed search batch has germinated ( top photo ) so i am pretty well convinced of the viability of that seed which is good news ( we are full of good garden news today )...even better, the seed i rescued from the mold induced by being in the basement for nearly a year is doing well...in fact on was ready to pot (second photo )...so i did..as i was preparing to plant it i noticed that the root had penetrated the paper towel( third photo )...i tore the towel as carefully as i could with tweezers but rather than risk damaging the root i ended up planting the seed with a bit of paper towel attached ( fourth photo )...more organic matter in the peat pot and, nearly as i can tell, no harm done...into a peat pot filled with compost and a bit of potting mix and downstairs under one of the new, broader spectrum, grow lights to green up...natural daylight will be playing a part in this plant's start, but the object is to try to grow it to maturity indoors...we'll see.
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.
