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

it's mid-november and the teosinte branches on the older plant are leaning down and the husks on the ears are splitting to allow the seed heads to shatter...a sure sign the season is over...i have seed for this variety in the freezer along with seed for zea mays parvaglumis...so there will be a couple of varieties out there next season...and if i can find a suitable spot out there i have seed for zea diploperennis as well...high time to start a a new stand of perennial teosinte...the younger plant still has green ears developing...it has been covered at night in hopes of extending its season to fruition...it will be a race with the weather...i have collected seed from the shattering plant and will be attempting to produce another generation from these plants...more on that as germination tests begin in very early 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.
