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

limited input tonight because of limited events...when i got home i found that one of the teosinte's tillers had laid down ( first photo )...it isn't broken ( second )..it's actually a behavior teosinte will indulge in, however usually when it is a bit more mature and going to seed...a mechanism to get the seed as far from the parent plants s possible ( not that they offspring would be competition for an annual...just a way to extend range )...so no harm done actually...so i applied some jute twine to bring it back upright ( third ) and it is fine ( fourth ) i will need to anchor it to something sturdier than the tomato cage it is attached to right now..a grade stake seems likely...the fifth photo is of a cluster of potato plants supported by a toamato cage...what is important ( for me anyway ) are the potato fruits in the last three photos...ten so far...not counting chickens before that hatch...but still geeked.
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.
