The practice of joint planting - we plant dill with garlic
Ogorodniki quickly realized the benefits of joint plantings of different crops, and therefore with enthusiasm are experiencing ever new combinations. And here is another successful option. Without cunnings, as always, it was not done.
We, like many ordinary workers, really love our six hundredths. Naturally, there is everything for a normal life in nature: a house, a garden, a vegetable garden and, of course, a place to relax, located right in the center of the site. And there are two chairs for receiving guests, a table, and most importantly - a hammock. In it, the head and the owner of our dacha, Ivan Yegorovich who loves to live without land, likes to rest from the affairs of the righteous, plants everything himself and carefully looks after the plantings. What does he not grow!
But his special pride is garlic with dill.
The technology of planting these crops is very simple. Ivan Yegorovich digs up the ground on two beds (each of which is 1 m wide 30 cm), and they are slightly concave in the middle, so that when watering the water does not drain into the aisles, and all absorbed into the ground.
Then he makes a row of holes across the beds (leaving 10 cm between them) and puts white slices of winter garlic in them to a depth of about 7 cm (I will not tell you the name of the variety - it is not known to us).
And now the most important secret of Ivan Yegorovich: without falling asleep holes with lobules, he fan, as it turns out, spreads seeds of dill Gribovsky on the whole surface of the beds. And only then the reverse side of the rake all equals and sprinkles it with humus or peat.
In this kind of beds go under the winter. He does not water them, does not make any chemical fertilizer. In the spring, when the snow comes down, it sprinkles the land again with humus or peat, so as not to be exposed Dill seeds.
During the summer, my Vanyusha pulls only large weeds in the beds. He pours a day later with water from barrels (if it's too hot, he does it every night). And you can not imagine how dill rises like a thick, velvety carpet. Oh, what flavor from him!
A how many useful insects are blissful in its thickets!
Neighborhood with dill is very like garlic, which invariably grows large, clean and never gets sick.
In the process of growth, he gives seeds in umbrellas on high legs. When they mature, cut out the umbrellas, leaving on the heads of garlic hemp height of centimeters to five, so as not to interfere with the plants normally develop further. Garlic umbrella binds and hangs to dry.
The seeds then go for breeding (I forgot to say that my Vanyusha sows my garlic in the fall or spring - it all depends on the weather and free time) and for cooking (unless crushed, of course) all kinds of pickles and borsch.

But the seeds of dill ripen simultaneously with the heads of garlic. Ivan Yegorovich carefully collects all, knits in bundles, removes his favorite hammock and hangs this wealth between his racks on the crossbar. From the direct rays of the sun pritenayet light fabric. It dries five days, no more, otherwise garlic will begin to fall apart into lobules. And the dill then stores in canvas sacks. This is how good harvests are obtained every year. And Ivan Egorovich, my dear agronomist, wants all readers (and at the same time, health and happiness).
