    Our fertile layer is only 5-8 cm thick, further - loam, and below - clay of all colors: yellow, red, reddish. She planted apple trees in planting pits 1 × 1 m, filled with fertile imported soil mixed with compost, sand and peat.

    The seedlings took root, grew, began to bear fruit, and then began to die one by one. And the reason is the high "primer" and clay soil. In the spring, like a shovel on the bayonet, and there water appears. Once at the beginning of the season, when there was no melt water and everything was dry around, I transplanted a rose bush. I began to dig up and saw that the roots were like in a glass of water - the clay did not allow it to flow away. I think that the roots of my trees were also constantly in the water until summer. So they got wet ... Of course, my three dug ponds and four neighboring ones lowered the general level of the "primer", but since then I began to plant trees and bushes on hills. And make the landing pits smaller.
    In the case of mounds, you also need to understand that in frost without snow, the roots in them can freeze slightly.

    Therefore, now I make high ridges, and I plant everything on them. Last year we tried our pears for the first time. But I just could not understand whether it was time to remove the fruits or not. No experience yet! But the birds prompted - pears began to peck. Then she took off everything. But the summer apple tree was still too late to break off, because the fruits were firmly on the branch. I collected it when I saw that they began to crack. Tore off, and they are already like cotton steel. Ate them, of course. But the question remained. How, then, is it correct and simple to determine the time of picking apples and pears?

    It so happened that part of the garden I found myself with a high groundwater storage. But I found a way to put this minus in the service. In the spring, I dug a trench wide and deep onto a spade bayonet in a well-lit place and dug cabbage seedlings into it. I judged so: once the water is close, then the plants themselves will find it, besides in large quantities, because to drink cabbage is something to love.

    I can only protect her from the cold by covering the seedlings with a thick film. On this my chores ended. When it became warm, she removed the film. And the seedlings were strong, stocky, with thick trunks and fat leaves. Transplanted from the trench only those plants that grew too close to each other. The rest stayed there and ripened very early. '
