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

a stop at the community garden after work yesterday revealed some new additions to the population and some progress among the established..i found half a dozen blue lake bush beans up when i got there..so...six day from planting to germination...clearly the asparagus is at home...i found three new spears up yesterday...the blooms have faded and i am waiting to see if and "berries" appear...more seed to propagate would be fine with me..the yacon that had shocked is on the rebound with more new leaves while the orange lunchbox pepper and beefsteak tomato plants continue to produce...there are no roma tomatoes apparent yet...however there are multiple flowers so fruit should be in the offing...the rye in my bed is moving closer and closer to ripe and there will be a harvest soon...i have acquired seed for brussels sprouts and kohlrabi for fall harvest and those will be going into a bed before the month is done...there is movement...there is room for more..we will l fill in as we 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.
