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

the beans in the field by the supermarket have topped the native growth...in places..in other places the legumes seem to have been seriously out competed by plants from bermuda thistle to rapidly maturing ( and tall ) poke weed...obviously an untreated field...no round-up, atrazine based carcinogen here...there is lots of competition down the no-til rows and if you closely to the right of the building in the last photo you can just make out some volunteer corn...the seed patent holders will not be happy with that...unfortunately it is nowhere near enough to the edge of the field to wade out to...they say there's no suicide gene ion that stuff...and hybrid corn does have issues with sterility in a second generation...but the volunteer corn i have been able to observe has never produced ears...perhaps i will look for another bean field...doubtlessly it would have been corn last season..there may be volunteers closer to the berm.
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.
