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

a bit later in the morning Parker! came out to the garden to help and a few new plants went in...from the top we now have sweet basil, italian oregano ,and cilantro in a bed with some beans and a few cucumbers...the geranium in the fourth photo is blooming and is representative of the plants we put in every bed to act as a trap crop for japanese beetles...al thoug, in my experience, it's more of a repellant than a trap...and peaking of blooms another potato has blossomed ( fifth photo ) with a more standard issue potato flower to join the early blue that has a proliferation of blooms in the last two photos..fairly soon we will be crossing the divide and enter into the time frame for plating autumn harvest crops like brussels sprouts...the season is moving along...it isn't nearly done yet.
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.
