Summer heat and caring for crops tires experienced gardeners quite a lot, and beginners in gardening are simply scared off. To turn your stay in the country from hard work into a pleasant rest, you need to approach the creation of your own garden wisely.
A few simple rules for setting up a garden
On the summer cottage there is necessarily an area set aside for garden crops. If you are a beginner summer resident, do not overdo it - start with small beds, as it were, separate islands that are easier and more pleasant to process. Large areas occupied by crops that require careful care (systematic watering, fertilizing, processing, performing other work) will not leave time, and the main purpose of the dacha is not work to the point of exhaustion, but rest.
To get started, write down a list of crops that you will need fresh daily.
Determine their location on the garden plot or outside it (for example: along the paths, in the form of a vegetable bed with green or spicy-flavored crops).
Highlight areas that are shady and sunny. Shaded areas will be planted with crops that do not require direct sunlight.
Set aside a sunny plot for the main garden, where crops will grow that require a larger area of nutrition, sunlight, frequent watering, etc. Do not cover the entire area with vegetables.
Plant the part that is feasible for processing, and leave the rest, temporarily turning it into a natural, so-called, Moorish lawn. 1-3 years of rest under the herbs will improve the soil. Prevent weeds from inseminating in an empty area. Mow the tops at the onset of mass flowering, and the green grass mass will rot during autumn and winter, adding organic matter to the soil.
Lay the beds set aside for vegetable-green crops in such a size that it is easy to reach from the path to process the plants. The optimal dimensions are 1.0 meters wide and 2-3 meters long. Leave the paths 0.5-0.6 meters. It is inconvenient to work on narrower ones, especially when watering, feeding, spraying. It is easy to cover such beds from frost with a film or other covering material.
To ward off pests, plant your garden beds with marigolds, calendula, nasturtium, and other natural insecticides. You will get a country-style vegetable garden and at the same time the need for spraying against pests will be significantly reduced.
Of course, all vegetables can be grown in the garden. However, when starting to prepare garden beds, think about how much is needed for the family and whether you need to grow the entire list of crops. Maybe it is more correct and more practical to choose only the most necessary fresh ones in the daily menus, and the rest can be painlessly bought on the green market or in specialized stores?
Now let's find out in more detail about the cultivation of some of the most unpretentious vegetable crops.
