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

garden walk IV
tomatoes and the first pole bean trellis dominate the sixth bed...the beans are filling in well all down the garden ( you'll see as you move along the posts )...there are a couple of potato plants as well as solanum carves out its niche on the south side of the bed...meanwhile in the seventh bed along the jerusalem artichokes are growing quickly...this may be a ten foot season with bursts of yellow flowers in another month...there are potatoes here too ( they are seemingly in competition with the beans ) and the blooming early blue in the fourth photo have been joined by the german butterballs in the fifth...the surviving mashua plant is fine...but there are once again some escaped sunchokes outside the bed...did i say relentless?
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.
