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

the grandfatherly grape root stock may be weathered and the vines going up the elm tree may have been cut which is sad but a fact...however the vines in the spruce tree clearly were not cut and they have burst out of the tree and are leafing and latching on to any support they can find ( tubers and tendrils...abiding geekness ) and not only are they leafing, they are blooming...there are grape flowers in abundance...and where there are flowers there are grapes..it may be a truncated harvest this year but it will be a harvest...perhaps enough for a batch or two of jelly...grape jelly from the backyard vines to go with the "bread made from scratch" project results..Jean gets first crack at it but i will share after that.
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.
