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

april first at the iuncg
it's very early in the season and all in all it's pretty quiet in the garden...there is garlic up and i counted an even dozen of asparagus spears ( first five photos are the highlights )up this morning...so there is movement even if it is slow...oddly, every time i got to the garden of late i have found jerusalem artichokes on the surface of my bed ( sixth )...i am uncertain as to the cause...frost heave seems unlikely since the nighttime temperatures rarely get below freezing for any extended periods anymore...critters? i haven't any real clue...they are rooting and would grow however as i find them i am returning them to about three inches below the surface where they belong...they will sprout soon enough and this nonsense will ,hopefully ,end.
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.
