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

around the yard
just a short jaunt around the back yard as i watered after work this evening...the zea mays parvaglumis ( first two photos ) continues to leaf well while the northern tepehuan teosinte ( third and fourth ) also shows definite signs of leaves...so far so good on the teosinte...the ramps ( fifth ) are starting to die back more noticeably...however the good news is i have found four that are getting ready to flower ( sixth and seventh as representatives )...so...hopefully...more seed to scatter around..there are now thirty eight potato plants ( eighth as yet another rep ) up and running out there which will do well in a few months for lunch...the ninth photo ( pardon my fingers..it is breezy...they would not be still ) are a couple of ears of winter rye just emerging...and...while speaking of emerging...the last two are of volunteer pacific bluestem wheat...there are always surprises out there...
as an adenda...it was very warm for mid may here again today...off to campus to check on the rock mulched teosinte there tomorrow...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.
