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

there has been growth in the field by the supermarket...last week the corn was about up to my waist ( first photo )...a week of torrential rains and hot weather have spurred the plants on to about eye level in some places ( second )...there are still differences in height in the rows ( third ) however the leaves are beginning to close the arches over the space between the rows ( fourth )... while there has been growth in the shade ( fifth ) it hasn't been much ( sixth )...in fact the entire row along the berm of the field is stunted by comparison with the rest of the field ( seventh )...and while we are talking berm, it is more heavily populated by wild grapes ( eighth ) than i had suspected...and they are taking some hits from japanese beetles ( ninth and tenth )...still looking for them to produce fruit...the season is moving along...the time has come and they are running late...or i am just not looking in the right places...more as it irrupts.
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.
