Our competition "Summer Season - 2006"
The year passed so quickly that I could analyze the results of my summer season at the dacha only before the last day of submission of materials to the competition announced by the magazine.
A year ago, I was also lucky, and I became the winner of the competition. As a prize, I received a certificate from the company "Mika", according to which I could choose seedlings in their nursery at a convenient time for me.
I was pleased with the assortment of seedlings and the attitude towards the client there. But the main joy awaited me and my family members in the summer, when one of the apple trees selected as a prize at Mika and planted in my garden in spring, or rather, the Orlovsky Sinap apple tree bore 8 pieces of large green delicious apples. Thank you for such a prize!

The past summer cottage season delighted our family with a splendid cabbage harvest. Traditionally, we grow cabbage of different types and varieties - white cabbage: Slava, Gift, Blizzard - everyone knows them; Cossack - early ripening hybrid (ripens in 65 days); an excellent hybrid of the Dutch selection of Rinda - a record head of cabbage grew in weight 7.5 kg.
Were not forgotten and varieties of red cabbage: Mars MC and Kalibos (Czech selection), Auto (from Holland) - they are suitable for salads. The heads of these hybrids are less dense, but juicy and very tasty. Red cabbage helps to remove radioactive substances from the human body, improves blood composition. In the photo you can see part of our cabbage crop. The Savoy cabbage variety Yubileinaya has a very unusual look - the leaves are beautiful, they will decorate any table.
An excellent material for decorating a garden and lawn until late autumn is decorative cabbage varieties: curly leafy Cadet, curly green and red Kai, Gerda, Decorative mixture, Rose flower, Tokyo, Peacock. This cabbage continues to amaze with its beauty, unusual shape and color, it is similar to both a head of cabbage and a flower, it amazes with its ability to winter in the garden to a temperature of -10? С. Bouquets of leaves and heads of cabbage are original, beautiful and stand in the water for a long time. We love this ornamental cabbage for its beauty, but it is also nutritionally valuable, collard greens are rich in minerals and vitamins.

I have already talked about my summer cottage experiments, for example, about growing cucumbers in bottles. When outsiders see a solid cucumber freely placed in a bottle, there is no limit to surprise.
And last summer I grew a cucumber in a cabbage head. How can I do that?
Plant your cucumber seedlings next to your cabbage. When a small cucumber appears on the lash, carefully put it in the head of cabbage that is tying. The fruit of a cucumber develops well in a growing head of cabbage. Leave this head of cabbage intact, and cut it open in winter: it will contain a fresh green cucumber. I managed to do it, try it too.
To make cabbage less affected by pests, I plant onions and nasturtium between its plants, and I collect caterpillars by hand, I examine the plants every day.
There are other favorite crops: we plant pumpkins and squash of all sorts. On May 11, our grandson was born, I planted a pumpkin, and by September 11, she grew up, gaining weight 27 kg. My grandson was with me at the dacha, every day he watched her grow, they grew up together.
Of course, we planted cucumbers, peppers, carrots, beets, tomatoes. I was pleasantly surprised by the tomato hybrid Rosemary - 790 grams pulled the largest fruit, the rest were slightly inferior in weight, but were very tasty and beautiful. Carrots and beets grew excellently, if a year ago these vegetables were unsweetened because they were drowning in water, then last year's harvest was distinguished by excellent taste and size of root vegetables.
I always rejoice in any plant and wonder how such miracles grow from small seeds. Let all lovers of our glorious six hundred square meters always succeed and the harvests delight them with their beauty, deliciousness and size. I wish you all success!
