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

decanted and planted
some of the seeds i have extracted from the potato fruits over the past month have spent the past twenty-four hours soaking in gibberellic acid solution to break dormancy...in the meantime i took some vermiculite ( top photo ) and mixed it with some potting soil in clay pots and moistened it ( second and third photos )...at the end of those twenty-four hours i drew off the acid solution ( fourth and fifth photos ) and planted twelve seeds in each pot...then covered the seeds with a layer of vermiculite and watered them lightly with a spray bottle...now we wait to see what comes up...more as it arises.
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.
