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

i covered the teosinte saturday evening and left it that way until today because of sub-freezing temperatures here the last two nights...those temperatures left the younger of the three big plants still green with emerging ears...not so the elder of them...i have then pretty well contained with bamboos and twine but the oldest plant is in full autumn colors and branches are leaning down where they can to let the seed ears shatter and scatter...the rears are splitting open and revealing rows of seed...some still green...i will be bringing in some to use as a display in the living room and leaving some to finish maturing...there will be germination tests and if any sprout there will be a basement tesointe season and ( hopefully ) a second generation next spring.
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.
