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

a maintenance ( there are still things to water 0 and inspection run out to the garden this morning shows seasons melding into one another...the 2015 season still has production going on...there are still jalapeno and banana peppers out there and the single cauliflower plant that produced is still working on a head...and that bed of spuds is still holding on for all it's worth...refusing to die back until hard frost...while that's going on next season soil is taking shape in the form of the green manures that re establishing themselves...fairly lush in the cool october weather, they will be the basis for fertility in 2016...next season's garlic population continues to expand...twenty-five plants up in two beds...there will be mulching soon enough...the last photo is a late season geranium...still going.
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.
