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

what is this? the second day of summer?
and the wheat continues its ripening...the hard red spring ( first photo ) is moving along and i found a surprisingly ripe ear of emmer ( second ) while the pacific blue stem is turning amber ( third )...they syrian dwarf is still so green it is blending into the background and resisting clear photography...maybe later...the zea mays parvaglumis ( fourth ) continues to show its relation to its descendant maize ( fifth )...seven of the twelve imported wild strawberries have survived and are showing good growth (sixth )..the chines yams have all sorts of new growth ( seventh )...and remember those brussels sprouts ( eighth )i planted as a fall crop last season and which surprisingly ( to me ) overwintered and took off again this spring and have already produced seed pods? well now they have very small sprouts going on ( ninth )...i am pleased...finally a ramp flower has achieved enough photographic definition that i can show you one in the early stages of deployment ( tenth )...a member of the allium family it should be producing round, black seeds soon.
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.
