Labor instead of chemicals.
Diversity in place of monoculture.

the rock mulch i put out for the teosinte at the community garden had mixed results...the smaller of the two plants has vanished ( first photo ) and it may have been too far gone to save two days ago...the larger plant has burst into leaf ( second photo ) and you can see that the rock mulch did have some impact in helping it to retain some moisture ( third )...so i rearranged the rocks a bit and watered the larger plant ( fourth )...i have a replacement for the vanished plant and will install it soon...meanwhile the fourth yukon gold has come up ( fifth ) to join the four reds ( sixth ) and the other three golds ( seventh )...the lone egyptian walking onion ( eighth ) is prospering in the shadow of the jerusalem artichokes...no need to worry about them( ninth ) they will do what they do best...survive.
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.
