Green crops are a source of health
If in our beds mainly dill, parsley, sorrel are grown, as well as 5-6 other types of green crops - this is the limit, then, for example, in Japan, gardeners grow about 300 types and varieties of vegetables that provide consumers with vitamins.
The crops grown include such valuable sources of beta-kerotine as yellow-fruited tomatoes and sweet peppers; various types of salad; varieties of cabbage (collard, broccoli, Savoy, red cabbage, Peking cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower); daikon, from which not only root crops are eaten, but also leaves; mustard, watercress, spinach, artichoke, chicory, chrysanthemum, asparagus, celery, katran, parsnip, rhubarb. It is no coincidence that the highest average life expectancy is noted in Japan.
Now there is a carrot boom. In order to prevent cancer, the Japanese consume carrots in unlimited quantities. This is how the nation's concern for health is manifested.

More than 50% of malignant tumors are due to poor nutrition. There is a direct link between the daily menu and cancer.
In addition to carotene, green crops contain vitamins, amino acids, microelements, phytoncides, which are equally important for the body, necessary for good nutrition. Particular attention should be paid to the cultivation of dill, parsley, celery, anise, basil, borage, mushroom herb, snakehead, marjoram, thyme, chervil, coriander, in which the content of beta-carotene reaches from 10 to 20 mg per 100 g of raw masses. Catnip, lemon balm, savory, tarragon, cumin, sage, rue, fenugreek, goat's rue, hyssop, oregano, marshmallow also contain up to 10 mg of beta-carotene per 100 g of raw weight; as well as leafy vegetables - spinach, sorrel, leafy mustard, clover, watercress.
Among the early vegetables, green onions are widely grown in our country. Greens of onions contain up to 2 mg of beta-carotene per 100 g, while varieties of perennial onions (batuna, leek, fragrant, bear, chives) that are still rare in our country contain up to 6 mg.
Regular consumption of green crops helps to prevent serious diseases, including cancer. Serious scientific research abroad has proven that beta-carotene, found in carrots, yellow and orange tomatoes and bell peppers, as well as green crops, inhibits the development of cancer in 75% of cases (this explains the carrot boom in Japan). The use of beta-carotene at a dose of 30 mg per day helps a healthy person stay healthy and maintain immunity to cancer.
In the summer-autumn period, and especially in winter, green crops are the main source of vitamin A for us. The possibilities for growing them are truly endless. In spring and summer, these plants can be sown as compactors to the main crops: to cucumbers - collard greens and dill, to cabbage - dill, celery, onions, lettuce, Savoy and Peking cabbage, to onions - radish, daikon, spinach. Celery is recommended to be planted with cabbage, because its smell scares away the cabbage fly. Strawberries and tomatoes can be thickened with spinach, watercress, parsley, savory, and essential dill. Kohlrabi and radish get along well with lettuce and lettuce, spinach. Carrots grow well with parsley, onions, spinach, broccoli and marjoram.
In autumn-winter and early spring, green crops can be grown in the room, on the balcony. For this, lettuce and head lettuce, Peking cabbage, watercress, spinach, garden quinoa, cucumber herb, dill, anise, coriander, basil, marjoram, savory, leaf mustard are suitable. To grow these crops in a room, you will need any container (crockery or box) and free space on the windowsill. You will be provided with fresh herbs all year round. Indoors, you can also get fresh greens from root plants by digging - onion bulbs, parsley, sorrel; rhizomes of perennials (batuna, chives, chicory, etc.). For an inquisitive gardener, the possibilities for creativity with these crops are truly inexhaustible.

I am sending a catalog for orders. To obtain it, you need a large envelope or a plastic bag with o / a and a stamped 15 rubles. Please do not send small envelopes with the letter A.
