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

last day of april
a cool and damp last day of april on the south end of the inland sea precluded much in the way of outdoor activity other than a short tour...the ramps and asparagus are fine with the weather ( third and fourth photos )...the emmer wheat ( fifth ) is doing well also and the dwarf syrian wheat ( sixth through eighth ) had begun to tiller at the base of the plants...more ears of wheat on the way..the seedless grapes and the concord grape vine in the catalpa tree are leafing well...and so is the grandfatherly root stock that has generated the catalpa vine...it has new growth that i am training to say inside my fence ( ninth through elveventh...pardon my thumb )...i am greedy with my grapes...after the tour i went inside to look into teosinte.
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.
