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

i was puttering around in the basement, relaxing after work...and trying to rearrange plants for better light access when i stumbled on a box of potatoes i had put down there a couple of months ago...holy chit! they were making it known that they were more than ready to be planted...the early blue, ollala, and german butter ball ( third-fourth-fifth )were well sprouted...perhaps over sprouted...so into peat pots and the seventeen new plants were distributed as well as they could be temporarily...it will be time, i think, to harvest the yacon, propagate new plants from cuttings, eat the tubers, and redeploy the spuds into a more rational arrangement...now to keep them running until the can go outside...there may be early planting in the community garden...in the yard...at my daughters'...all over...season is well underway...ready or not.
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.
