FEEDING OF PODIODORS - FISH, NETTLE AND SALT
I have been cultivating tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants since 1970. Every year I conduct experiments aimed at increasing productivity with high quality fruits. Over the years, he made many mistakes, but never gave up and stubbornly walked toward his goal.
Tomatoes before and now
In the 70-80s of the last century, he cultivated nightshade only in open ground, because then you could only dream of a plastic film. Tomatoes at that time were low and medium. Plants were shelled from newspapers from frost. Crops amounted to 1 1, 5 kg from the bush.
Now, with films and polycarbonate, there are excellent opportunities for growing greenhouse nightshade. I have 2 stationary greenhouses: the largest is 7, 3 long, 4 wide and 2 m high, has an area of 39 sq. M. m. I could not need to replace the soil in it; I would need a cu. m, or 15 tons! Siderates help me out in this matter. After harvesting the entire crop, I remove the stems with roots (this is usually in mid-September), loosen the soil, moisten and sow the seeds. For a long time he sowed winter rye and wheat, at the end of April of the following year, he buried these siderats on a bayonet with a shovel and prepared landing holes.
The benefits of green manure
Now I switched to new siderats and sow them twice. In the fall - oats, which grows to 1-5 cm in 25, 30 months; at the end of October, I dig the soil with a layer turnover. In winter, toss up the snow. From mid to late March, densely sow peas, moisturize and harrow. As a cold-resistant crop, peas tolerate small frosts, up to 30 degrees, and grow to XNUMX cm by the end of April. In the last ten days of April, I dig out beds with a layer turn and prepare the holes.
Oats make the soil loose, enrich it with nutrients and destroy weeds. Pea as a plant clot of proteins gives nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus and many micro and macro elements to the soil. After such green manure, the soil becomes loose and light, and you can even make holes with your bare hands. In early May, I plant seedlings. I make holes for tomatoes 20 cm deep, and for peppers and eggplant up to 15 cm. I switched to planting nightshade using nettles and small sea fish.
- 1st group (control) normal landing.
- The 2nd group put nettle twigs (200 g) on the bottom of the hole, sprinkled it on 5 cm and planted seedlings.
- The 3rd group put 2 fish of frozen herring on the nettles, sprinkled 5 cm of soil and planted seedlings.
Nettle is such a valuable plant that it even goes to people. It grows only on rich soils; its vegetation is from early spring to late autumn. After nettle, all garden crops grow well.
Any fish is valuable for its composition: it contains nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, a lot of macro and microelements, and above all iodine.
I grow tomatoes tall, with large fruits.
If the nettles near the plot are even, then it can be sown on a small patch of land in a well-lit place and mowed up to 5 times in a season.
In the fall I have been preparing seedlings from fertile land taken outside the site, humus, peat, sand, ash (in the ratio of approximately 30, 30, 30, 8 and 2%). He refused steaming, replacing it with freezing.
I wash the seeds in potassium permanganate. I sow peppers and eggplant in the garden at the end of February, and tomatoes in the first decade of March. First, I grow plants on the windowsill, and from April until planting in the loggia. I dive into separate cups and place screens of white paper and foil under each plant, which inhibits growth in height and allows seedlings to be stocky v “broad-shouldered”.
After planting in a permanent place, I water only under the root with lukewarm water. After that I add mulch. I grow tomatoes on a trellis in one stalk with the removal of all stepsons, leaving 5-6 fruit brushes, and this is 25-30 tomatoes.
On peppers I leave 10-12 fruits, on eggplants 7-9. I do not suppose thickenings, I remove extra leaves or minted. When the plants reach a height of 170-180 cm, I cut off the upper growth point.
The experimental results are as follows: plants planted on nettles yielded a yield of 15, and nettle and fish yield 30% higher than in the control group. The effect is obvious.
In the first picture: the wife Aleksandra Sergeevna holds in her hands the fruits of Stopud tomato, their weight is 450 g. In the second: in the foreground is Japanese giant pepper, the fruit weighs more than 700 g, along the edges are Kolobok peppers (400 g each), in the center Krasnodar tomatoes weighing 550 g.

TOMATOES - FISH FEEDING. VIDEO
SEND TOMATOES DIRECTLY IN THE BUSH
Salt is in every kitchen, you can not do without it when cooking. It is needed by the human body for a full life, this is known to all. But for me it has become indispensable in the cultivation of tomatoes. I want to share how to use it with fellow summer residents.
The method requires accuracy
R I learned from an experienced gardener that saline irrigation makes tomatoes sweeter, protects them from diseases and pests, and shortens the ripening period of fruits. Conducted a number of experiments, deduced the "formula" of the use of salt. Now I always water tomato bushes with its solution and from my own experience I became convinced that using this simple method you can grow healthy, strong and, most importantly, tasty tomatoes. In addition, the skin of the fruits becomes denser, they do not crack.
Having accumulated a certain experience, I began to share this method with all my friends, but noticed that not everyone who does top dressing with salt gets the desired result. A friend, for example, having tried my method, said that she sees no difference. But I think the whole thing is that it is very important to correctly observe the dosage. If you add more than necessary, the chemical composition of the soil will change in an unfavorable direction. You can generally just burn plants. And if you make a lower concentration, the effect will be invisible.

Recipes of salt "soul"
Salt and water are used to prepare products in an unequal amount, and other components are added to some mixtures. It all depends on the purpose for which salt is fed. For example, laundry soap is added to better stick the solution to the leaves, if we need to carry out preventive treatment from late blight.
To feed tomatoes in the initial period and during the entire fruiting period, I prepare a solution: for 10 liters of warm water (20-25 degrees) I take a glass of ash and 1 tbsp. l table salt, carefully stir and water the bushes once every 5-7 days.
To improve the taste of tomatoes (increase sugar content) I advise you to water the bushes with salt solution without ash once every 10 days. Dosage is the same: 1 tbsp. l on a ten-liter bucket of water.
To prevent and stop the spread of late blight on tomato bushes, I spray the plants with a highly concentrated solution: for 10 l of water, 250-300 g (1 cup) of sodium chloride and 200 ml of liquid soap are required. Processing can be carried out no more than 1 time per month.
And a few more important tips: it is better to carry out treatments in the evening hours, after sunset, so that the plants do not get burned. After preparing the solution, be sure to pass it through a filter or through gauze folded in several layers to prevent the ingress of solid particles. Follow these simple rules and your tomatoes will be the tastiest and healthiest!
