Courgettes: about cultivation and use
Zucchini - easy growing and great use
A delicious, light, diet squash is very healthy! At the same time, it is not so difficult to grow it - it is not capricious and very harvested. So I recommend paying attention to it to all gardeners.
CARING FOR KIDNEYS
Zucchini is a heat-loving plant, therefore, in the northern regions it is grown through seedlings, but in the Middle lane and southern regions it can be sown directly into the ground.
Seedlings are sown around the end of April. Use better peat pots to less damage the plant when transplanting. It is recommended to sow on 2 seeds, as not always the germination rate is 100%.
Pots should be placed in a bright place, but be controlled so that there is no draft. It is necessary to water the seedlings every 4-6 days with warm water - only in no case from above, along the leaves, but directly under the root. You can feed the strengthened plants with superphosphate and urea: you need to take one and the other of 5 g, dilute in 1,5 liters of water and pour the seedlings. Seedlings are usually planted on a permanent place in early June, when frosts no longer exist.
Direct sowing in the soil is carried out in late May - early June. The place under the vegetable marrow should be chosen bright, without high groundwater. The site must be dug up in advance and humus added to it. Wells should be placed farther apart (80-100 cm), since zucchini grows very much. They must be poured with warm water, and then sown seeds or planted seedlings grown directly in peat pots.

The first 3 weeks of zucchini for the night should be covered with plastic wrap. The first fertilizing is usually carried out through 2 weeks after seedling or after transplanting seedlings. Only the preparation of feeding should be done earlier. It is necessary to fill up the enameled bucket with mown grass and fill it with water. Stir the infusion every day. When the time comes for feeding, 10-liter bucket should be poured 1,5 l of herbal infusion and add water. Water under the root.
When the first ovaries appear on the vegetable marrows, it is necessary to pour into the bucket 1,5 l herbal infusion, pour 150 g ashes, and 20 g double superphosphate, add water, mix well and water the plants.
CLOSER TO THE YIELD
For a good crop of zucchini, it is necessary to regularly pour water warmed up in the sun - the frequency depends on the weather and soil on the site. At the beginning of growth, it is important to weed out, and when the zucchini becomes an adult, then he will cope well with them. Zucchini loves loose soil, but you can’t actively cultivate and loosen plants, since they have a superficial root system, and it can easily be damaged. When the bush grows strongly, the largest leaves should be removed so that there is no thickening and the fruit has enough sunlight.
The first zucchini is plucked in July - they are the most tender and delicious in the milk stage of maturity (from 18-22 cm). If you like large fruits, do not forget to put boards under them so that they do not rot from moist soil.

Tell us what kind of Rondini squash is?
Rondini is a zucchini zucchini that is not cylindrical, but spherical. Green rondinis have a fairly tough skin and are traditionally used for soups, casseroles and stuffing, that is, they require heat treatment. And rondini with yellow fruits are also good fresh, they are suitable for making salads.
I read about the round zucchini, which I wrote about and decided to write about my zucchini. I bought a bag of Bulava seeds at the store, sowed - and these are the zucchini grown (see photo). I canned them all in a "fermented" way: cut into slices, added seasonings - garlic, pepper, dill.
Under the recipe for a three-liter jar you will need 2 art. l. salt, 2 art. l. vinegar, 4 st. l. Sahara.
Zucchini pour boiling water and leave for three days, after which they are ready to eat.
If you need to keep it for the winter, drain the brine, boil for 5 minutes, close the cans with nylon covers and put the cooled ones into the cellar. I have cans with carvings, I closed them with old screw caps - they stand well. Zucchini is very tasty, the whole family likes it!
This summer, I set a record. Sowed squash seeds harvested for another 7 years ago (accidentally found them in the closet). And what do you think? They showed 100% germination and gave a wonderful harvest. I, naturally, took care of harvesting such seeds from such wonderful specimens for future harvests.
I note that zucchini always grows far from the pumpkins, otherwise the plants may become dusty, and it is unclear what will come of such seeds. I examined the courgettes, chose the largest fruit and left it until full ripening (for food I often cut very young fruits).
the main sign that the seeds are ripe is a hard peel. When I waited for this, I cut the zucchini, took out the seeds, cleaned them of pulp (you can’t wash!) And laid them out on a plate lined with paper towels. Napkins changed daily. The dried seeds were harvested before sowing.
I will share the experience of last summer. I planted 5 different varieties of zucchini - with white fruits, and with green, and with yellow. Part - immediately into the ground, part - first to seedlings. Among the varieties were early and mid-early and late. That is, you see, the full variety provided, as it seemed to me then. And at first, the zucchini, which I planted with seedlings, was ahead of their neighbors, sown in the ground.
My garden with zucchini goes from north to south, and they grew from the north. So, by the middle of summer all the specimens of all varieties were lined up simply by growth, and the highest ones were on the south side. And all this motley brethren was blooming in one day!
True, the very first fruits ripened after all at the grade of Kavili F 1 but this flowering in one day and the way all of them in the sun lined up, unforgettably! Therefore, I do not think that it is necessary to deal specifically with zucchini seedlings or to select a line of early and late varieties. Everything will be as nature wills.
