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

six days in...
...and things are coming along...one look at the leaves on the mashua in the top show you they are members of the nasturtium family...what they can't show you is how absolutely geeked i am to see them ...you'll have to trust me on this...the second photo is of an ollala potato plant...andean tubers abound...and, while we're focused in on the solanum family let's have a look at the first tomato of the season in the third photo...quick start...the asparagus in the fourth photo is looking robust in its second year...meanwhile the peppers in the fifth photo are racing to catch the tomatoes...blooms and fruit before you know it...the garlic in the last photo is looking like it owns the bed..it will be done in a month or so...then pasta sauce with organic garlic...we will eat well.
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.
