    Two years ago, my father was diagnosed with a terrible diagnosis - diabetes. At first, we did not know what to do, what dishes to cook for him, what kind of physical
    load is possible, which of the drugs is better to take. Unfortunately, among our doctors there was no consensus on the treatment, so sometimes we were given conflicting advice. Father did not get better, on the contrary, he began to spend more and more time on the couch. And then my mother's friend from Siberia came to visit us, who was surprised why we do not treat him with folk remedies, including a decoction and tinctures from barley. It turns out that they are all treated for diabetes there.

    To begin with, we asked our friends for barley - they grow it specially to make home-made beer. And we prepared the tincture as follows: D2-3 tbsp. l. flour poured 1 liter of boiling water and infused
    Vali 25-30 min. Our patient took it 1/2 cup 5-6 times a day.
    This went on for a month, and we noticed that our head of the family became noticeably more active, even began to go for a walk in the forest. It became clear that barley helps well, so we decided to grow it in our garden. We bought seeds and planted it under our trees in the garden, because we knew that he was afraid of heavy rains and hail, then only thinned out the deciduous undergrowth and watered occasionally (when there was a drought). The harvest was good in the first year, now there is even an opportunity not only to support the father with this tincture, but also to help the neighbors in the city, we are all grateful for this.

    The needles can be safely used in the garden as a mulching covering of the earth. It is applicable for beds with vegetables. But under the strawberry is better to pour pine needles: the needles are not so sharp and much larger, so they will not injure the tender berries. Needles scare off pests due to the contained phytoncides. And this is an obstacle for slugs and snails that do not dare crawl on sharp needles.

    Do not rush to throw onion husks and eggshells - they will come in handy. Remember how grandparents laid eggshells under fruit trees? These wastes are really good. The shell enriches the soil with such important trace elements as calcium and magnesium, and it also repels the bear. But if it seems to you that the “shells” scattered around the site do not look very presentable, chop them into powder and sprinkle them with beds, flower beds, areas under shrubs or tree trunks.
    And cormorrhizae of dahlias are better kept if you pour onion on them.
    You can also make infusion from it and spray indoor plants with it - so you protect
    plants from various pests. Prepare it is quite simple: put three handfuls of husk in a large pot or bucket, compact, pour 5 l of warm water and insist for a day.
    Strain infusion can already be used. But it is better to use it not in its pure form, but diluted with water (1: 1). They can spray plants prophylactically once a week and a half.
    And undiluted infusion is useful if a spider mite is wound up. In this case, it is useful not only to spray the plants, but also to wipe off the trunks and shoots with a moistened swab from all sides. In a day, the treated plants can be "bathed" under a warm shower.

    Mulch of cones
    For mulching the trunk of fruit trees, we use cones, which we collect for the future with our husband in a pine forest. In summer, this natural material perfectly protects the earth from scorching sun rays. In addition, a layer of cones passes through the moisture without delay, but at the same time prevents it from evaporating quickly. The air also passes through this barrier well, but the weeds can not overcome it. It turns out that such mulch significantly facilitates us, pensioners, life, reducing the number of watering and propolok in the garden. In winter, shelter from cones protects the soil and plant roots from the cold.


      Moss-sphagnum is also very suitable for mulching. First of all, it prevents the reproduction of harmful insects and promotes the development of microflora, thereby improving the fertility and soil structure, maintaining a uniform temperature of the earth, protecting the roots of plants from overheating in the summer and freezing in winter.

    We sowed the site with ciderats for the winter, but did not have time to seal them in the soil - snow fell. Tell me what to do with them in the spring?

      To dig a site sown with siderates, it is not necessary in the autumn. In the winter, they will serve you well, preserving and enriching the soil structure. The stems of the plants will hold the snow and will not allow to dry out and erode the upper fertile layer of the earth, and in the spring they will not let the melted waters destroy the ridges and wash the nutrients from the soil. The root system of many sideratnyh plants is able to penetrate deep into the earth and extract the hard-to-access compounds of potassium and phosphorus from there to the cold. With the onset of winter, the tops will fall to the ground and gradually pereperet, enriching the top layer with nitrogen, and the roots, rotting in the soil, will loosen and fertilize it.
      The best siderates for autumn sowing are oats, mustard, winter rye, vetch and canola. Oats are sown on clay soils to improve their structure, often it is sown in half with a wick that enriches the soil with nitrogen. Oats are an excellent precursor for cucumbers, since it cleans well the soil from root rot.
      Rape protects the soil from pests and pathogenic bacteria, supplies it with phosphorus and sulfur, inhibits the growth of weeds. Rapeseed grows better on light, not waterlogged soils and is a good predecessor for cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers and eggplant. Rye depresses weeds, contributes to the destruction of pathogens and nematodes, loosens the soil. It is sown before planting potatoes, pumpkins, zucchini and cucumbers. In the autumn, before the stems begin to prick, they should be cut or mowed. The ground part is left to be lapped on the site or laid in compost. The roots of white mustard produce organic acids that help convert nutrient elements (for example, sparingly soluble phosphates) that are inaccessible to plant assimilation into easily digestible ones. Mustard grows to the coldest and leaves in the winter green. In the spring, the greens are cut with a flat-top cutter and the main crop is planted on top.
      In many agricultural reference books, one can read that the accumulation of green mass in the soil loosens and increases its water permeability, thereby activating various microbiological processes.
      However, in recent years there has been an opinion that digging disturbs the structure of the soil, contributes to its weathering, so it is better not to cut the siderates into the soil, but leave them on the ridges. Before planting in the spring, it will only be necessary to loosen the ground with a trowel or flat cutter, by cutting the plant mass to 2-3 cm. Thus, the remains of stems and roots, rotting, turn into humus and enrich the soil with all necessary macro- and microelements.
