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

some of the diversity in the appearance of the potato seedlings is beginning to disappear as they progress...it hasn't vanished though...the plants in the first three photos are fairly close in looks but the fourth photo shows there is still a fair amount of difference...the plant in the fifth photo most resembles a domesticated potato in my experience..the others are more "viney" are really more closely resemble the wild potatoes i grew last winter down to the new "vines" that are sprouting form a number of the plants like the one in the last photo...i have some doubts about any of these plants ever setting tubers..but given that it's three degrees fahrenheit outside and they are in a thoroughly unnatural environment they're doing fine.
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.
