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

the season out back is coming along with more movement and new additions...both of the bogota market mashua plants are up ( first and second photos ) and their kinship to nasturtiums is plain to see...no word on the mashua blanca yet...i am all anticipation...the walking onions are beginning to "walk" ( third ) and the aerial bulbs continue to look alien ( fourth )...the asparagus plant in the back bed is doing fine ( fifth ) and so is the new spear ( sixth )...the dying back ramp leaf in the seventh photo is sheltering a stem that will ( hopefully ) produce a bloom and then seed...finally the eighth photo is of some winter rye ( which is actually in focus to the left ) and the ninth is some hard red spring wheat along the margins of the back yard near the alley where a stand has irrupted from seed i scattered there in spring 2016...wheat has viability seemingly near that of maize..more as it comes up.
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.
