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

at the community garden
took a trip out to campus after work to turn some beds and water some plants and found a few things along the way...the lettuce is looking better than it did last trip out which is encouraging and there are six cucumber plants up and running...four in one hill, two in the other...both varieties are represented...i may not know much but i know zea when i see ti and the third photo is definitely bear paw maize popping up..i an defying the squirrels..i imagine they will not care about human defiance and will eat the maize anyway...the orange lunchbox pepper is looking robust and preparing to bloom...and so are any number of beds in the garden...we are started..there is much more to do and soon if there is to be a season...let's go.
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.
