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

the stand of winter rye in my bed at the garden is pretty much ripe...there are still a few green stems in the bunch, however the seed heads are done and i wanted to get them out of the garden before the birds found them ( not that i begrudge the birds working at making a living but this rye is for the "bread from scratch" project..it's mine )...so i took the pruning shears i had in the truck and harvested the lot...laid it out on the ground...and tied it into a sheaf..in a few minutes i will take it out of the truck and into the basement until i can begin threshing and winnowing this long holiday weekend...there will be more on that as the tedious process unfolds.
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.
