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

out back late may
just a short tramp around the yard after i got home...the chinese yam that suffered a broken vine ( first photo ) is showing its invasive resilience and has sprouted a new vine ( second ) which is only the first of several more to come...its dna will not be deterred...the northern tepehuan teosinte( third ) and zea mays parvaglummis ( fourth )plants are samples of the population which is coming along...three beds of spuds ( fifth through seventh ) do not include the plants in containers to those yet to be planted..it will be a tuber bonanza ( i hope )...there is more wheat up than i expected..it seems as if seed i sowed last autumn as part of the winter wheat crop that failed in the bed that now has spuds in it has come up on the periphery of the yard ( eighth ) and it is mostly in full flower ( ninth )...finally there are jerusalem artichokes...more tubers...i am okay with that.
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.
