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

not quite, for the most part, is what i would say about the grain season out back...the stand OF pacific blue stem volunteers ( first photo ) still has some green in it ( second ) however moat of the ears are ripe ( third ) and it will, i think, be the first to harvest...the winter rye ( fourth...also volunteers ) is further from being finished...still a lot of green (fifth )...the stand of hard red spring wheat ( sixth ) is probably second in line to harvest...not that much green ( seventh ) and many ripe ears ( eighth )...the ancient emmer wheat ( ninth ) has exactly one ripe ear...the rest (tenth and eleventh ) are stubbornly green...and the dwarf syrian wheat ( twelfth ) isn't even making a pretense of ripening ( thirteenth ) green is the mood for the day in that container...and has been ever since germination...it could be a while yet.
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.
