WHAT TO FEED BEET - A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE IN THE APPLICATION OF FOLK MEANS AND HANDMADE FEEDING
How to please beetroot "mistress"?
I grow beets in my garden every year, but I could not immediately make friends with this beautiful red-cheeked beauty. It turned out that beets are the same fickle that agrees to give me pot-bellied, juicy and sweet root vegetables only if I provide her with "high-calorie" food. Since you can’t cook real beetroot soup without beets, throughout the summer season I am pleased to please this “lady” in every possible way and strictly observe the regime of her feeding.
After the emergence of seedlings on the beds I spend the first top dressing, which helps to strengthen the root system of seedlings. To do this, pour 10 cups of sifted wood ash in 2 liters of warm water, leave the contents for 6-8 hours, and then fertilize the planting with such an infusion under the root on previously moistened soil. An ash infusion prepared according to the same recipe, I use 2 more times with an interval of 3-4 weeks to feed the beets during the loading of root crops - in late July and August.
When 2-3 real leaflets form on the plants, I give them top dressing with a mullein solution (1:10). Sometimes I substitute such food with bread kvass, which I prepare from a loaf of stiffened rye bread, fermented for 4-5 days in a bucket of water (with the addition of 2 tbsp. Sugar).
With the appearance of the 6th true leaf on plants, I spend top dressing with saline. To this end, in 10 liters of water I dissolve half a glass of ordinary rock salt and carefully water the plantings under the root, trying not to get on the tops. I repeat this top dressing when the tops of root crops appear from the ground, and again after 2-3 weeks. I carry out salt treatment on moistened soil, and then once again I spill the bed with clean water from a watering can. This technique allows you to get especially sweet root vegetables.
In order for the beets to grow not only sweet, but also large, in July and August it must be fertilized under the root with a solution of boric acid. For such top dressing, a solution of 10 liters of water and 0,5 tsp is prepared. pharmacy powder of this substance.
In addition, 4-5 times a season I spray the vegetable on a sheet with a light pink solution of potassium permanganate. Such an elixir not only nourishes plants with vital manganese, but also reliably protects against fungal diseases.
The red-cheeked "mistress" really likes this diet, and by the fall she gives me a generous harvest of pot-bellied sweet root vegetables.
ON A NOTE:
For several years now I have been growing beets on nettles. I put her mow in a narrow bed, then sprinkle it a little with the earth, lay out the beet seeds, and on top of them again the soil.
Watering well watering and waiting for seedlings. They appear much faster than where the beets are sown in the usual way. Naturally, the crop ripen faster, and it turns out more abundant, and the root crops themselves are larger.
