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

so...it's the day after yesterday and if the temperature in the micro-climate of my back yard had done anything i has gone up...and what does this balmy late autumn day ( it is technically fall for eight more days ) find me doing? digging trenches to plant flower bulbs at someone else's behest ( i am NOT a flower kind of guy...if it isn't a nasturtium i am not interested )...specifically forty daffodils, twenty crocus, twelve tulips, and thirty chionodoxa...whatever they are...to be honest i had some deteriorating seed garlic still hanging around so the flower bulbs have some allium for company...there was a batch of homemade compost finished in the bin so all the bulbs got a dose to grow on...things are not natural here...i have no idea when, or if, they will realign themselves...perhaps volatility in climate is the new norm...or, at least, uncharacteristic divergence.
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.
