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

not what you think
first actual spuds of the season...finally...they don't look like the reds you buy at the supermarket...they are elmer's blur ( i the first four photos ) and early blue in the last three...both are indicative of the genetic diversity to be found in the 5000 or so varieties of spuds in the world...as they continue come in some will be eaten...some passed along to friends..and the smaller ones planted in the basement to grow over the winter for seed potatoes in spring...the garden never really ends...just move around.
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.
