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

a tramp around the yard
the sun is out today and the snow is in retreat...but there's still shade and still ice for the vetch to be at home in...those yellow peas have shown more resilience than i gave them credit for...but they are annuals and cannot withstand much more in the way of winter..their time will come soon enough...there are still many unshattered teosinte seeds in ears out there ( more on that in the next post )..however, when i went to check on the ramp seeds i found...nothing..well...i found the stump of the stem they were on...something has ingested them and the will be spread...just not in my yard...the good news is the root system and bulb weren't disturbed...and speaking of root systems the roots and support roots in the sixth photo were what was holding up the plant to my left in the bottom photo ...nothing like a well turned support root.
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.
