It is impossible to imagine our table without vegetables and potatoes. They are the most important component of the diet of both the academician and the carpenter. Vegetables - a pantry of carbohydrates, protein, organic acids, vitamins, mineral salts, enzymes, and other essential nutrients. Of particular value are vitamins, which are either almost absent or present in small doses in other products. Do not rely solely on grocery stores and markets, start your own vegetable garden. Especially if you want to have fresh vegetables straight from the garden. The secrets of growing vegetables are not that complicated. Diligence, perseverance, curiosity, ingenuity will help you overcome all difficulties and become a real vegetable grower.
So, advice from specialists and experienced gardeners.
To extend the season for the consumption of fresh vegetables, early, medium and late varieties are planted. The earliest harvests in the open field can be obtained from the cultivation of perennial crops (sorrel, rhubarb, perennial types of onions), as well as from winter sowing of carrots, beets, parsley, radishes and planting onions. Early vegetables of annual crops (lettuce, cucumbers, radishes) and onions can be grown in small greenhouses in the garden.
They accelerate the development of shelters made of film or glass without artificial heating in early spring. You can grow radishes under them. They can cover sorrel, rhubarb, onions, winter crops of beets and carrots.
Vegetable plants according to biological, botanical and economic characteristics, they are classified into homogeneous groups.
Cabbage plants. There are several varieties of cabbage: white cabbage, cauliflower, red cabbage, Savoy cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kohlrabi and leafy cabbage. Almost all types of cabbage are biennial plants. Only in the second year, the planted stalks with apical buds give seeds. Plants of this group are cold-resistant, require increased moisture supply, although they do not tolerate excessive moisture (especially long-term), they are demanding on soil fertility. Cauliflower, Chinese cabbage and broccoli under certain conditions form seeds in the first year of life and are annual.
Mid-season cabbage varieties are suitable for pickling, late varieties for pickling and long-term storage. Red cabbage is unsuitable for cooking, it is used fresh for salads. Cauliflower is good for boiling, roasting, and canning.
Roots. This group includes: carrots, parsnips, parsley, celery (umbelliferae family) beetroot (from the haze family) radish, turnips, turnips, rutabagas, radishes (cruciferous family) chicory (from the aster family). All root crops form seeds in the second year of life (when planted with an intact apical bud), with the exception of radishes and summer radishes, which give seeds in the first year. Without exception, all plants of this group are cold-resistant, require high soil fertility, moisture supply (especially in the period after sowing the seeds).
Bulbous plants. In this group, onions, leeks, perennial varieties of onions (multi-tiered shallots, batun onions) coexist. All these plants are cold-resistant. Onions and garlic contain many nutrients and vitamins. Onions are grown by seeds (nigella), sevkom (small bulbs 1.5-2.5 cm, usually obtained from nigella) and a sample (3-4 cm or more).
Fruit vegetables. Cucumbers, zucchini, squash, pumpkin, watermelons, melons (pumpkin family) tomatoes, peppers, eggplants (nightshade family). All these plants are very thermophilic and require highly fertile soils. Almost every year, in our conditions, to obtain these vegetables, it is necessary to use protective agents against frost and low temperatures.
Peas, beans and beans (legume family) also belong to the group of fruit vegetables. Unlike their neighbors, they can withstand low temperatures. Beans are somewhat more thermophilic than peas and beans.
Green vegetables. These are the familiar salad, dill, parsley, celery, watercress, coriander (do not be confused that we also included some of them in the group of root vegetables - remember the sayings about tops and roots), as well as other cultures that we almost not familiar and not cultivated in the middle lane. All of these crops are cold-resistant annuals, they are mainly sown with seeds.
Perennial vegetables. It is somehow unusual to call sorrel, rhubarb, asparagus, horseradish vegetables - but it is so. All these plants are frost-resistant, in one place they can grow from two to five years. Propagated by seeds and vegetatively.
Potatoes. Among vegetables it takes a special place, it is bred to obtain tubers. Potatoes belong to the nightshade family. Potato bushes are easily damaged by frost. Propagated mainly by tubers, but you can also propagate it by eyes, sprouts, dividing a bush and even seeds (this laborious work does not give the same effect as propagation by tubers).
Part garden plot that you allocate for vegetable crops should not be shaded. If possible, you should choose a free, well-lit area with the most fertile soil (if the soil is not very fertile, you need to patiently start creating it for many years). A common mistake of novice vegetable growers is the desire for a combined arrangement of crops, when vegetables and strawberries are placed among young apple and pear trees. As long as the trees are young, everything seems to be going well: the crowns do not shade the beds too much, there is enough light and food for vegetables. But trees quickly gain strength, grow, and then the intermediate crops fall into the shade, their yield decreases from year to year. Indeed, most vegetable crops and potatoes do not tolerate strong shading and the presence of roots of woody plants in the soil. Therefore, one of the main rules for complex gardening and horticulture - provide a place for each crop and take into account the need to subsequently carry out a competent change (alternation) of vegetables and berries. After all, a certain culture should be returned to its original place not earlier than after three years, and even better - after four or five years. To do this, you need to draw up a clear plan for the placement and rotation of crops.
The timing of the return of crops to their original place is roughly the following: cabbage - 3 - 4 years, carrots - 3, peas - 4 - 5, celery - 3, tomatoes - 3 - 4, cucumbers - 3, lettuce - 1-2, onions - 4 - 5 years.
The yield decreases especially sharply and the quality deteriorates with permanent cultivation of cabbage, beets, peas, tomatoes, cucumbers, and potatoes.
When plants are re-grown on the same soil, a decrease in yield occurs as a result of the release of physiologically active substances into the soil, which subsequently inhibit the same culture.
The most appropriate width of the beds is 1.2 m. Between the beds, paths 0.3 m wide are left. The creation of narrower beds is a waste of the land of the garden plot, wider ones - it makes it difficult to cultivate the soil, care for plants and harvest.
The unpretentiousness of the Zolotaya Plum variety distinguishes it very favorably from its traditional rivals. However, we must not forget about the elementary care of the plant, which implies, first of all, regular watering of the root system. In this regard, it should be remembered that water stagnation must be avoided, which can harm the health of this fruit tree.
In addition, it is important not to forget about plant feeding, which should be carried out at the very beginning of the spring season. This must be done for the plum to grow and develop properly. It will not hurt to pay attention to aesthetic splendor. To do this, it is necessary to annually cut off excess and protruding branches, which violate the formation of a perfectly rounded crown shape.
In order to prevent the most common mistakes when caring for the "Golden Plum", you should carefully read them.
Landing frequency. There are a lot of cases when, in pursuit of yield, the owners of garden plots allow too dense planting of plants. This leads to the fact that the natural development of the crown and root system is disrupted.
Fertilizers. It is important to remember that improper nutrition of a fruit tree will inevitably lead to its illness and even death. In this context, the optimal consumption rates of mineral fertilizers should be taken into account. After all, the oversaturation of the soil with them can cause the amount of salt in the soil to increase, and the plum will begin to freeze in winter. And this, in turn, will lead to poor development of tree branches, a decrease in the quantity and quality of fruits.
Pollinators. Due to the fact that the variety "Golden Plum" belongs to a self-fertile species, this plant requires special pollination. In this sense, it is necessary to monitor the required number of pollinators and their correct selection. That is, plants with similar flowering periods should grow in the garden next to the plum.
This type of plum appeared in our country several decades ago. But many gardeners liked it. Its main difference can be considered an extremely narrow crown - 80 cm. Columnar plum varieties are convenient to plant in small areas, since they do not have spreading branches. But such plants have a significant drawback - they do not tolerate low temperatures.
Colonial plum is not distinguished by a large number of varieties.
The most famous:
These are small trees, about 2 m high, give up to 16 kg of fruit. They can be used both fresh and for jam, jam, etc. Fruiting begins at the 3rd year of life. The yield is growing every year.
This early variety of plum was bred in Ukraine, but it is successfully cultivated in cooler regions, since the plant has good winter hardiness.
A plum tree can reach a height of 5 m. At the end of July, large fruits (weighing 40-50 g) of a round shape ripen on it. The skin is dense, yellow, covered with a waxy coating. Sometimes a golden orange blush appears on it. The pulp is greenish-yellow, juicy and sweet, with a honey flavor and aroma.
Early renclaude has long managed to fall in love with many gardeners due to its very tasty fruits and high yield. However, this variety is self-fertile, therefore, it is necessary to plant plums of one of the varieties nearby: Renklod Karbysheva, Hungarian Donetsk, Hungarian early Donetsk.
All early varieties bear fruit in July and early August. The best according to the opinion of breeders and gardeners can be found in the description below.
The tree has an average height and medium foliage, grows well in areas with abundant sunlight on moderately moist soils. When planting, you can expect from 3 years of cultivation for a yield of 12 kg per tree.
Red fruits with sweet yellow flesh ripen at the end of July. The average weight of the fruit is about 30 g, the shape is ovoid. The fruit is best suited for making desserts and preserving.
This kind of plum has fruits with yellow pulp and a pleasant sour taste. There is a slight waxy coating on the fruit surface. Trees bear fruit regularly, giving off an average of 15 kg of plums per year, which ripen by mid-July. Zarechnaya early is best suited for harvesting conservation.
This variety of plum is distinguished by its red fruits with juicy aromatic pulp. Ripening occurs from late July to mid-August. Productivity - average, from 4 years of growth is about 10 kg per tree. This variety is a dessert one.
The trees of this early variety are distinguished by a dense crown and medium height. The fruits are purple-red, oval in shape, have a thick waxy bloom. The pulp is juicy, dense, there is a slight sour taste. This variety is favorably distinguished by such qualities as frost resistance and good immunity to various diseases, the ability to store fruits for up to 2 months in a cool room, as well as a high yield - about 20 kg from one tree.
This is a medium-sized plant with a not very dense crown and large fruits weighing about 40-50 g. But there are also fruits weighing up to 70 g. Fruits are very beautiful - yellow-green, have a purple blush, dense, juicy pulp, sweet and sour taste. An early variety of Peach plum does not withstand low temperatures too well, therefore it will be acceptable, for example, for planting in the Crimea. But it is favorably distinguished by excellent immunity to diseases.
This variety belongs to the category of ultra-early. The trees reach a height of 3 meters, but at the same time they look quite compact. The fruits are medium in size, weighing about 40 g, have a thin burgundy skin and a bluish bloom. This is the sweetest plum with a honey-yellow pulp.
An excellent variety for planting in central Russia and Ukraine, as it firmly tolerates frosts up to 20 degrees and does not succumb to diseases familiar to plums.
This variety is versatile in terms of the use of fruits. The trees are quite low, the fruit is oval in shape and weighs about 40 g. The color is yellow with a red blush. The taste is juicy and sweet. Fruiting irregularly, but hibernates quite well.
