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

a stroll down the beds I
the bed on the east end of the back row of the garden is booming along with spinach, beets, collards, and turnips...but there has been some turnip harvesting going on ( second and third photos ) that has left open space...since one of the philosophical thrusts of the garden is cyclical planting and as continuous a harvest as possible it was time to plug the hole...my friend fern sent us some egyptian walking onions which are pretty much anytime planters so in they went ( thanks fernita! ) (fourth and fifth photos )...there will be more space opening up and i am planning another bed in a week or two so there's that much more area to plant...there are still a couple of empty beds in the garden that were reserved...one supposes that if they are not planted soon their proprietors will be usurped...you know how gardeners feel about empty beds.
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.
