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

just a very quick trip around a couple of places in the yard after a brief rain shower...the first two photos are a morphological study of maize ( first ) and teosinte ( second )...they are related and there is a strong family resemblance...the third photo is of emmer wheat and the husks seem to be growing lighter...and thickening and hardening as well i imagine...they were planted in march...it may be that the season is reaching the end...it certainly seems so for the pacific blue stem ( fourth )...that is ripening wheat and no mistake...they are volunteer plants growing from seed that hit the ground last summer at harvest so they are by far the oldest spring wheat out there...only makes sense they'd be the first to ripen...time to find the sickle and make sure it's sharp.
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.
