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

my yacon showed up today..i had expected tubers not live plants..so...out of the tiny growing tubes ( they were profoundly pot-bound ) and into potting mix/compost in peat pots under the grow lights with the jungle of potato vines grown form seed when things warm a bit they will sun out on the deck in the day and come in at night...sensitive to frost they will go out in may...seems the tubers are not how they are propagated...eat the tubers, save the crowns ( the are a perennial in frost free areas ) to plant again next spring...sounds simple...may not be so...more as they develop...it will be a tubery season...fine by me.
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.
