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

the top photo is of a bed after the first dig to turn under the green manures last saturday...the second is what it looked like when i got to the garden after work today...and the third is what it looked like after a second dig...i will be going out there a bit more often now until planting day to continue turning the soil, breaking up the roots with a warren hoe, and aerating the soil to aid the breakdown of the organic matter..the fourth photo of another dug bed ( with garlic ) and the bottom two are a couple of the wealth of earthworms i tuned up with a shovel today...always a good sign for a gardener...we will have some well prepared spoil on planting day.
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.
