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

a bit of growth and a comparison
the spud on the right has had a growth spurt over the past few days ( the mashua to the left has added some leaves as well, however it is a different plant than the one in the first photo...that one has been transplanted )
the nasturtiums ( top of these three photos ) and the mashua are exhibiting their kinship in a long and storied andean lineage...and while we are talking mashua, i brought in the trellises i was using for their parents outdoors last season so they would have something to vine on...
the yacon seems happy..at least two of the three anyway...still no word from the third rhizome...
and this structure on the teosinte plant still looks more like a fir than a flower to me...expect many photos until it sorts itself out ( the plants know what to do )
an ex- industrial worker ( the continued automation of jobs, condensing of ownership, plant closings, trade wars, and degradation of living standards here has rendered me a former industrial worker...now just part-time lumpen proletariat) 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.
