Labor instead of chemicals.
Diversity in place of monoculture.

the ramps i ordered arrived today and so were planted today after work...i went out and prepared a bed under the locust trees next to the one i planted a dozen ramps in last autumn...one of those has flowered and is setting seed ( and taking its sweet time...i discovered this bloom sixty-nine days ago...two mature seeds so far )...those seeds have fifty bulbs to back them up for next spring...they came with well developed roots...so i planted them and watered...now i will be raking leaves ( ironic eh starlight? ) to mulch the beds with and provide compost in the spring...hoping for many many wild leeks in march...in related allium news the garlic bed i planted eight days ago has twenty-six of seventy -three plants up and running...heavy mulch there too as winter sets in.
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.
