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

autumn = seeds...the top photo is of some wild grape seeds i came across...the fruit, which isn't nearly as large as domesticated grapes, has desiccated leaving a hard shell around the seeds...so i put them in some distilled water to soak until the coating softens...i will clean them and stratify them along with the seeds i collected from this past september's grape harvest and germinate them in the spring just to see how well it works...the third photo is the ramp seed head...only one seed has found the soil and it did that some time ago...have to wonder what the others are waiting for...the rest of the photos are of more emergent teosinte seeds ( and a photo bombing ant )..doubtless there will be more.
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.
