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

the large teosinte plant in the first photo is about as tall as me ( there have been some strikingly unfortunate photos of the plant and i taken together...i detract from its presence...they remain private...if not deleted )...the next four photos are of teosinte plant and a maize plant alternately just to show some of the morphological similarities between ancestor and descendant...you can tell they are of the same family...much like the solanum cousins on the south side of the house...perhaps some photos of that are in order...or in the community garden tomorrow...the sixth photo is of ramp flowers that re taking their sweet time in blooming...and the last two are grapes in the trees at the end of the patio...their season is moving along...hoping for a better ending this year.
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.
