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

brought in some more garlic this morning...that harvest is nearing completion...still a couple more to go out there but they will be in by the end of the month...this is inchelium red garlic which is a softneck variety...as i have been bringing these bulbs in i have noticed more than one with a secondary bulb growing on the stem above ground which is a new experience for me...some research tells me that this is a defense mechanism to insure reproduction triggered by the cold winter...a trait not shared by hardneck varieties...so i get a bonus...i nave garlic bulbs to use in cooking and i have secondary cloves to plant in a few weeks...my garlic just went local as my green manures.
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.
