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

nasturtiums are in the yard because they are peppery little blooms and relatives of the andean tuber mashua which is also out there...it is late october and the nasturtiums are going to seed which is fine with me...i have been combing the ground around the plants in search of "mature" seed and have already mailed some off to a friend...further research has revealed that waiting is not a necessity...like potato fruits, color and growth stage are not an indication of viability...size is more of a factor...i have quite a few seeds of varying sizes still on the vine so to speak and since there is no frost in the immediate forecast i will be letting them go a bit longer...it is good to know they can be harvested at any time though..options are something of a rarity in viability..i will be taking advantage of this one.
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.
