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

the zea season, both ancestral and descendant, is moving along ( albeit more slowly for the "wild and weedy" ancestor )..the filed of dense yellow #2 out by the supermarket is in full flower ( first and second photos ) and the silks are moving from light to dark as they dry after pollination and as the ears mature ( third and fourth ) the fifth photo is of leaves on a stalk of field corn and the sixth is of leaves on a stalk of teosinte...the seventh is of support roots on field corn..the eighth of the tiered support roots on northern tepehuan teosinte...the tenth photo is another corn flower ( some are sticklers for calling them tassels...i am not...a flower is a flower and serves the same reproductive function [within parameters] as any other ) and the eleventh ( sense a pattern? ) a flower on the northern tepehuan teosinte...today's foray into morphology...finally the twine on the stalk of zea mays parvaglumis that fell over four days ago is still holding it up and, as i had imagined, the plant is showing nos sign of having suffered damage over its fall...still booming along
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.
