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

got home from work to find another grape vine had arrived from the local garden center..so..i soaked the roots in water while i dug a hole ( using the displaced soil to hill some spuds nearby ) and back filled the hole with compost, a grape vine, and a geranium to fend off unwelcome beetles...the vine i planted on monday obviously likes the environment it has found itself in..it has deployed more leaves and, more importantly to me, there are tendrils emerging that speak eloquently of vines and fruit to come...and speaking of fruit to come, the grapes in the fir tree on the ancient and grandfatherly vine are flowering in anticipation of the fruit...these will have seeds...i will be saving them...more as the vines develop.
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.
