How wormwood repels pests ....
Gardeners write very little about crops such as beans and beans, although some successfully grow them every year. Of course, they are worth it. Black beans are especially pleased with the harvest - beans are more thermophilic and somewhat capricious. But no less useful!
Cutlets in a special way
I have a little land - 4 acres, so for beans and beans there are worse beds in the shade along the perimeter of the garden: two for beans and two for beans and sunflowers. I make very narrow (60 cm) beds and plant the beans in three rows at a distance of about 7-10 cm from each other. If it rains in the summer, I don’t remember about them, except that I will water the infusion of herbs once or twice, that's all. And what land after these crops! Loose, filled with nitrogen. What do you want to plant a year or two without any fertilizing!
Young people eat fresh beans, they are delicious and hearty. And I add ripe (black) minced meat to chops along with finely chopped cabbage And breadcrumbs (namely, not soaked loaf, but biscuits, passed through a meat grinder). Beans must be boiled (about 30 min.), Pre-soaked in 6 h in warm water with the addition of 1 tsp. baking soda. Then clean, they are well cleaned.
Scroll along with the meat: for 1 kg of meat I take half a cup of dried beans. Cutlets should not be fried, but baked in foil in oven 30 min.
They are much tastier and more useful and do not burn.

Now about the beans.
On two narrow beds, I plant it somewhere in the middle or end of May - according to the weather: it is more heat-loving. I soak it for the night, keep it in a rag for two days in a warm place and let the seeds just stew. No need to grow long "horns"!
But first I plant sunflower seeds after 50 cm, and around them with a tent - beans. The sunflower grows quickly (you just need to feed it), the beans grows and, as it grows, begins to curl along the stems of the sunflower. She no longer needs any support!
I tried to plant bush beans on potatoes, but I did not like it. Then it does not come off, then the potatoes are ready, but it still does not, and it is necessary to pull out the unripe. And then if the sunflowers ripen earlier than the beans, I cut off their heads, and she continues to grow on the stems of a sunflower. I after all plant a colored curly bean with them, and it is late.
Potatoes after these cultures are excellent, tested for years! From the bean, you get wonderful dishes with tomatoes and garlic, it's good to add it to borsch. In general, a wonderful and grateful culture. It's a pity that not all the gardens are "registered".
By the way, I plant peas twice - in late April and early July. And I plant potatoes a second time in mid-July and get a second crop at the end of September.
Wormwood is the best protector
Now about wormwood. Yes, about her, so ugly and boring to everyone, growing along rural streets. And I have along the path leading to my garden, there is completely wormwood on both sides, and I do not tear it unnecessarily. She is such an assistant - just a miracle!
I plant sprouts of cabbage on a permanent place. And as soon as she gets accustomed, she surrounds wormwood around her branches, and put small light twigs directly from above. When the cabbage grows a little and starts to "lopushitsya, I sow the perimeter of the ridge seeds of wormwood, which collected in the fall. They are unpretentious and come up quickly, only to water them it is necessary, while they will ascend. And by the time of departure, the worm butterfly wormwood has already risen and begins to guard my cabbage: the butterflies will twist and turn, and fly away.
True, the lower leaves eat snails, but they are not needed, all the same, we leave them in the garden as mulch.
And since the cabbage is clean, although I do not spray anything, I only sprinkle the ashes around me. The main thing is how much our truck farmers are tormented with this butterfly and everyone is searching and looking for ways to fight it! And what a beauty: cabbage grows as if on a flower bed.
Yes, I forgot to say, occasionally I plant marigolds between heads.
The land on the garden is good, not like a roadside on the road. Wormwood is green, powerful, marigolds bloom multi-colored. In the autumn, when everything is removed from the garden, these bright beds are so beautiful - well, just flower beds with flowers! Bees fly to my garden from a neighboring site for the last gathering, because by this time the mustard is blooming with bright yellow flowers. And when the whole crop has already been laid for storage, I put on the boxes of potatoes a blooming wormwood, which is already dry, and the mice don’t bite the potatoes as before.
Like this. And do not invent all sorts of "miraculous" ways! All ingenious is simple. We are not young, many gardeners are already in their eighth ten, have worked out for their lives. I wish you all good health and good harvests.
