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

robust alfalfa interspersed with winter rye is a staple in the green manure population this fall...and the garlic in this bed ( thirty plants up in toe beds ) is cohabiting with a fair stand of new zealand white clover...while i was out there i noticed the elmer's blue plant in my bed was finishing up so i popped up the root ball and fished around the bed a bit...found three decent sized tubers in return for the one i planted last spring that i do believe will be seed for next season...the bottom photo is of the garden about one this afternoon as autumn moves into a deeper transition.
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.
