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

soil + rainfall + sunshine =
a burgeoning outdoor season in the back yard....from top to bottom.. a teosinte seedling "greening' and about to produce a true leaf...a rosette-like cluster of potato leaves...a stand of alfalfa, winter rye, and long awned soft red spring wheat ( there is intermediate wheat grass out there too...a perennial "wild and weedy" ancestor to the wheat...some cross pollination of purpose? the season is young...time to ponder )...a bed of ramps ( geeked! )..garlic growing amid the winter rye and winter vetch...rhizobia = nitrogen galore...and an alien looking sugar snap pea...the season has been up and running since march...these days it actually looks like it.
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.
