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

if anything the plants in the industrial field behind the big box stores has withered a bit more since last weekend...almost all the ears are turned downward and the crop is ready to harvest...except..it is warm here ( actually it has cooled a few degrees since sunrise ) and .7 of an inch of rain ( 17.78mm ) overnight and into this morning has rendered the fields still too wet to harvest...there are beans stuck in the fields as well and more rain forecast...it may be novenber before this comes in...there is still some green in the field but it is mostly thistle and some lambs quarters emboldened by the weather...if this year repeats last they have some time left yet...it is too wet to be concerned about fire...the hydrant at the corner stands by in case...and the field is still for sale...it is zoned commercial and there seem to be few takers...there may be a crop again in 2017...stay tuned.
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.
