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

touring the yard I
the all natural precipitation stand of jerusalem artichokes i doing just fine...hasn't drown in the 8.49 inches of rain my back yard has gotten in the last 25 days...we will see how long this preternatural rain continues...the nascent grapes aren't turning their noses up at the rain either...moving right along towards grapehood...campus isn't the only home to teosinte...some of the annual variety grown from viable seed produced in my yard last year...geeked...and speaking of green manures ( when don't i ? ) there are more and more seed pods appearing on the hairy vetch that will go along with the dixie clover and winter rye into beds this coming late summer.
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.
