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

the early blue passed a couple of feet in height a while back...did the same thing last winter...and have slowed the vertical growth and begun to leaf out...the craigs snowwhite in the top photo has reached about 19 1/2 inches and it too is beginning to produce more leaves...it was planted on the sixteenth of last month...thirty-one days into its season and another thirty nine before it begins to set tubers...so january twenty-fifth is tuber day for them with a harvest sometime in late february or early march...the early blue were planted back on october nineteenth...fifty-nine days in but with a longer season...the fruition for both should be close...the third photo is of the purple valley four days ago and the next two are from today...noticeable leaf deployment and growth...plus another sprout to feed the roots...that was planted on the twentieth of november and will probably be finished in march...hopefully all in time for outdoor spring planting.
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.
