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

status quo on campus
there's a season at the community garden...but it is quiet at the moment...no real surprises to report...the onion is still blooming ( first photo ) and the three yukon gold potatoes ( second ) still have a way to go...even though it isn't recommended i believe more spuds will be going into the empty space vacated by the reds...there are two new potatoes coming up ( third and fourth ) i will add to the number...the teosinte ( fifth ) is looking much less water stressed after this morning's monsoon rain...no corn sweat today...the jerusalem artichokes( sixth ) have hit about three feet...normal stuff there too...the asparagus (seventh ) has settled in or a summer run..one new spear (eighth ) coming along...i am still hopeful that the flowers in the last photo will produce seed this year...i would like to spread some home-grown asparagus around.
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.
