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

a stroll down the beds II
the next occupied bed along is populated with curly kale ( parker! call sit a super plant )...a stand of garlic and several pepper plants...the pepper shave been blooming for a while and at least one has come to fruition as you can see in the second photo...the bed in the third photo has some potatoes (!) but it also contains a true perennial in the form of asparagus...the transplant from the bed of my truck this spring ( fourth photo ) shocked badly but the asparagus has proved to be resilient and it has bounced back and greened nicely much like the ones i transplanted last season did...some of those are in the last two photos and they all have multiple spears feeding the roots...i have commented before about how pleased i am about this...that still stands.
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.
