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

late may in the iuncg
the planting that was supposed to happen today was cancelled and i did not get the message so i went out o the garden after work all anticipation which gradually changed to aggrieved irritation which ha since abated after a late but well intended email...not wasting a trip i staked up the third year asparagus plants which have grown tall enough to fall over...they are about to bloom and i am hoping for a bumper crop of "berries" to seed around...the rye and jerusalem artichokes in my bed are coming along...the rye has large and well developed seed heads that will add to the grain harvest for the "bread from scratch" project...parker! showed up for the planting as well but was forced to content herself with serenading the plants that are there...the garden has some crops going on but there is considerable space left for more...it is almost june..time to get going or ti will be too late...the next to last phot is my truck bed and the last is a jerusalem artichoke that has taken root in the plant detritus that lives there from year to year...i told you they were relentless.
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.
