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

some zea mays in the top photo is beginning to flower ( second photo )...so is the teosinte ( we have been through this, i know..it's still in the third photo )..the fourth photo is of an emerging teosinte flower and it does bear some small resemblance to the corn flower in the second photo..but that smallness vanishes as the teosinte flower deploys ( fifth photo ) nothing spiky about it...it lays over and dangles while te corn flower will remain upright...relatives ( actually ancestor and domesticate )but the artificial selection of domestication has radically altered the morphology...if corn ears survive the squirrels there will be comparisons..if not you will endure many teosinte ear photos...be forewarned.
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.
