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

twenty-two day old spuds
the top four photos are purple valley, ollala, red pontiac, and all red potatoes grown from tubers i planted on the first of this month...they are well along and will be hardened off and planted in the gardens by, hopefully, the end of next month...if winter ever lets go...they are presenting some interesting technical problems brought on by the space limitations of my plant room...there is an entirely improvised response covered in the next post...the mashua is doing just fine and the leaf deployment is progressing...more slowly than i might wish perhaps...but part of gardening is learning patience...many lessons in microcosm...life.
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.
