“Give me the sun.” It is this request that gardeners hear from their garden crops. This summer is great for vegetables. At the evening verification on 6 acres, each variety “reports”. Banana-shaped tomatoes, currants, zucchini, potatoes, pumpkin and tomatoes are all here .. In “AWOL”, however, Norwegian European raspberries – the berries are beautiful, large, but empty in taste. But melons are sweet, although gardeners water them once a week. The secret is simple: no imported chemicals, but simple Russian mulching – a layer of hay and grass on the ground, about 5 centimeters. And heat – even more heat.
Valentina Krupina, gardener: “When I bought a second greenhouse, why, I think, will cucumbers grow here if they grow well on the street? There is also a tomato … I had a good harvest last year, there were melons for 4.5 kilograms.
Valentina Dmitrievna has been gardening for almost 60 years. He says that this weather is better – the sun. When it rains every day, then there will definitely be no harvest. Neighbor Olga Nikolaevna agrees: the sun is better. At 85, she keeps the garden and vegetable garden in perfect order. There are no problems with the harvest, no hassle with watering either.
Olga Pustotina, gardener: “In this drought, children watered raspberries three times with a hose. So, you understand, once a week you need to water the plants, and sometimes more often – depending on what kind of land and how hot it is .. And in greenhouses every other day and every day – how hot it is there “…
The forecast for the harvest is excellent, gardeners say. Potato lashes are excellent, there are no phytophthora – it is too dry for her. Cucumbers and zucchini are already being handed out to friends. Garden fruits are also not far behind: there will be a lot of plums, branches bend from apples. And also cherries, grapes, cherry plums… Red days in Russia are for good harvests, good marriages and healthy children. Until everything fits.
