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

last november i harvested a couple of mashua tuber from plants i had planted in spring of 2014...i stored them in a paper bag until early january when they began to shrivel...in hope of salvaging them i planted them before they became dessicated and this evening i found that one of the nasturtium family plants had sprung to life...thoroughly watered ( mashua is a thirsty plant )i put the andean tuber in a place better situated under the lights...i have more tubers ordered but it is always a treat to establish a second generation ( for me, anyway )...geeked is a good adjective to apply here...these plants will be going solo in containers this coming season...more as they come along.
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.
