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

fifteen of the potato tubers i planted on the seventeenth of last month are up and running...and since it is mother's day ( happy mother's day to all you mothers ) and the weather is warming i have begun to move spuds i had growing under the lights out into the real world to finish up...i brought seven up this afternoon and planted them around the ...edge of the bed and intercropped with ( but not close to ) the garlic...the one in the sixth photo is much more vine-like plant which must be a mechanism triggered by the relatively low light downstairs...it is not a plant from true seed it is a clone...just another adaptive behavior from a plant..it will not become unvine-like now that it is outside so we'll see just what it does and how it produces...while i was out there putting down compost for the spuds i gave the teosinte i planted yesterday a side dressing of it just to give it a little push...it has been a busy weekend in the gardens...it is go time.
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.
