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

it was 9 degrees fahrenheit and snowing when i woke up this morning so it seemed an auspicious day to begin the process of starting tomatoes for spring..my friend fern sent me a bunch of heirloom tomato seeds...among others ( thanks fern!! ) so i picked out the envelope of big rainbow tomato seeds ( because i liked the name...nothing researched or scientific about the choice )..i went downstairs and soaked some seed starting mix in water...added some vermiculite ( second and third photos ) mixed it and put it in peat pots...planted the seeds...and brought them upstairs into more natural light and a somewhat warmer climate to see what comes up...there are five more varieties of seed fern sent along so this isn't the last start by a long chalk...more if and when it comes up.
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.
