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

one white flower
the rain that was allegedly on the way disappeared so i went out to campus to water...status quo never fits a garden and things have changed ( however minutely )..the asparagus is looking robust ( first photo ) and the new growth it has is coming along ( second and third )...the jerusalem artichokes are as relentless as ever ( fourth ) and are approaching the two foot mark in height...from all the multiplicity of buds the onion plant uncovered last week ( fifth ) only a solitary white bloom has emerged ( sixth ) hopefully there will be seeds eventually and we can have an allium adventure next year...the die back in the potato patch continues ( seventh and eighth ) although the plants are not quite finished yet...while their season is ending the spuds i planted three weeks ago just down the bed are beginning to leaf ( ninth and tenth ) so we will have spud reports for some time to come...both from campus and the back yard...the carolina horsenettle ( elventh through thirteenth ) continues to show its solanum/nightshade colors and give graphic evidence of its relationship to spuds ( and so tomatoes ) by its startlingly spuddy blooms...finally, the rye someone plucked ( thanks ) is still laying on the ground and is looking ab it dead...it is not mature so this seed most likely isn't viable..it won't produce volunteer rye fro someone else to do in.
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.
