The calendar, addressed to gardeners and gardeners, contains centuries of experience based on the observation of the relationship between the moon and plants. In one lunar month, which lasts 29.5 days, the Moon passes through four "lunar seasons". From the new moon to the first quarter - "lunar spring". It is followed by the "lunar summer" - from the phase of the first quarter to the full moon. Then comes the "lunar autumn" - from the full moon to the third quarter phase. From the third quarter to the new moon, "lunar winter" rules everything. Lunar "spring" and "winter" direct all the juices in plants from the roots up to the leaves. The maximum vitality is manifested at the full moon! Then a recession sets in - during the "autumn" and "summer" the juices under the influence of the Moon go down to the roots. Many gardeners and gardeners use the simplest rule: plants that bear fruit with the aboveground part are planted during the waxing moon, root crops, on the contrary, grow well planted on the waning moon. Fruits and berries to the table are best picked on the growing moon, they are juicy and filled with active vitality. And on the waning moon, the processes slow down, there is less moisture in the fruits - the best time for harvesting for long-term storage.
The lunar calendar of the gardener and gardener and flower growers did not ignore. In the calendar, they will also find recommendations on the timing of planting and caring for their pets.
It must be borne in mind that the dates in lunar calendar of the gardener and gardener are advisory in nature, focus, first of all, should be on the observance of agrotechnical instructions. However, the complex application of agrotechnical canons and recommendations of the lunar calendar will allow gardeners and gardeners to please themselves and their loved ones with an excellent harvest.
Winegrowers know that frosts above -25 degrees can cause harm to the grape bush, especially if the grapes are not covering. It is necessary to properly care for grapes affected by frost.
Let's consider in detail: what to do if grapes are frozen how to determine the degree of frost damage to grapes how to properly restore and prune grapesdamaged by frost.

Oklahoma farmer Carl Burns has developed an unusual variety of colorful corn called Rainbow Corn. The grains on each ear are of different colors and shades: brown, pink, purple, blue, green, etc. This result was achieved through many years of selection of the most colored common varieties and their crossing.
Both humus and compost are rightfully the basis of organic farming. Their presence in the soil significantly increases the yield and improves the taste of vegetables and fruits. They are very similar in properties and appearance, but they should not be confused. Humus - rotted manure or bird droppings. Compost - rotted organic residues of various origins (spoiled food from the kitchen, tops, weeds, thin twigs). Humus is considered a better fertilizer, compost is more readily available.
It is necessary to collect medicinal flowers and inflorescences at the very beginning of the flowering period, when the content of nutrients in them is as high as possible. Flowers are supposed to be picked with hands, breaking off rough pedicels. The collected flowers and herbs are dried, scattered in a thin layer, in a cool room at a natural temperature without access to direct sunlight.
It is believed that some vegetables and fruits (cucumbers, stalk celery, all varieties of cabbage, peppers, apples) have a "negative calorie content", that is, digesting more calories than they contain. In fact, the digestive process uses only 10-20% of the calories from food.
Natural toxins are found in many plants, and those grown in gardens and vegetable gardens are no exception. So, in the seeds of apples, apricots, peaches there is hydrocyanic (hydrocyanic) acid, and in the tops and peels of unripe nightshades (potatoes, eggplants, tomatoes) - solanine. But do not be afraid: their number is too small.
Convenient Android applications have been developed to help gardeners and gardeners. First of all, these are sowing (lunar, flower, etc.) calendars, thematic magazines, a selection of useful tips. With their help, you can choose a day favorable for planting each type of plant, determine the timing of their ripening and harvest on time.
Compost - rotted organic residues of various origins. How to do it? Everything is stacked in a heap, a hole or a large box: kitchen leftovers, tops of garden crops, weeds mown before flowering, thin twigs. All this is interlayered with phosphate rock, sometimes with straw, earth or peat. (Some summer residents add special composting accelerators.) Cover with foil. In the process of overheating, the pile is periodically ted up or pierced for the flow of fresh air. Usually compost “matures” for 2 years, but with modern additives it can be ready in one summer season.
"Frost-resistant" varieties of garden strawberries (more often simply - "strawberries") also need shelter, as well as ordinary varieties (especially in those regions where there are snowless winters or frosts alternating with thaws). All strawberries have shallow roots. This means that without shelter, they freeze out. Assurances of sellers that strawberries are "frost-hardy", "winter-hardy", "endure frosts down to -35 ℃", etc., is a deception. Gardeners should remember that the root system of strawberries has never been changed.
Tomatoes have no natural protection against late blight. If late blight attacks, any tomatoes (and potatoes too) die, no matter what is said in the description of varieties ("varieties resistant to late blight" is just a marketing ploy).
The growing season of some garden crops is 3-4 months. Therefore, in order to get strong and healthy seedlings by the time of planting in open ground, the seeds of gardeners need to be buried in the soil in January.
Astrologers have chosen days suitable for planting peppers, eggplants, tomatoes and other vegetable crops.
In the first month of the year, gardeners plant not only plants with a long growing season for seedlings, but also the earliest varieties of vegetable crops that are prepared for growing in a greenhouse.
Astrologers call the 16th, 17th, 21st, 22nd, 26th and 28th of the first month of 2021 successful for planting bell peppers on seedlings. You can sow a crop on 14.01 and 15.01. Both sweet and bitter varieties are planted this month.
It is recommended to plant tomato seeds for seedlings in January 2021 on the same days as peppers, that is, 16, 17, 21, 22, 26 and 27. This month, gardeners, as a rule, sow early varieties.
In the first month of winter, gardeners plant vegetable seeds that take a long time to sprout and develop slowly.
The most successful numbers for planting eggplants are 16-17, 21-22 and 26-27. Less favorable, but allowed for this on the 14th and 15th of this month. Astrologers advise planting celery and shallots in the period from 14 to 16, and the favorable period for sowing leeks will be from 18 to 24.
The first month of the year is a good time to forge greens. In the period from 7.01 to 9.01 2021, when the Moon passes through the constellation Scorpio, which is considered a fertile sign, astrologers advise planting onions, parsley and celery. From 10 to 11, when the waning moon passes into the constellation Sagittarius, you can plant watercress, leeks, batun and chives.
Legumes are recommended to be planted on the growing moon.
Plants will grow and develop normally if watered, loosened and fed on those days that are marked in the lunar calendar as favorable for caring for vegetables.
On the 1st and 2nd, astrologers do not recommend watering, pinching and feeding seedlings. Better to do this 5, 8, 10 18-20 and 23-25. But for weeding and loosening, January 1 and 2 are perfect. You can also perform these activities 18-20, 23-25. Pest control will be successful if tackled on 7-9, 13-15, or 27-29.
According to astrologers, the following days are considered good days for planting in containers or hydroponics:
It is better to loosen, remove weeds and fight diseases on the waning moon, that is, January 1-2, 9-12 and 27-29, and water and feed - on the growing one: on any day from 15 to 26.
In January, the owners of heated greenhouses do not get bored.
On the 3rd and 4th, 27th and 28th, experts recommend planting root crops: turnips, celery, beets, carrots and potatoes.
January 16-18 is a good time for forcing garlic and all types of onions. At the same time, root crops are planted - celery, beets, radishes, turnips, carrots, etc.
From January 17 to January 26, gardeners can plant seeds of pumpkin and legumes, cabbage and greens.
In addition, in the first month of winter in a heated greenhouse, you can:
In January in greenhouses, you can weed, thin out and trim the strawberry mustache. It is recommended to do this at 12-14 and 27-29. Astrologers advise to cut strawberries, root layering in the period from 17.01 to 26.01.
Strawberries are thinned out on the waning moon in greenhouses
The lunar sowing calendar for Siberia is not considered complete without mentioning those dates on which sowing, transfer and other types of work are categorically not worth carrying out. This is due to the fact that on the indicated dates the onset of the new moon and full moon will be noted - not very suitable stages of the cycle for gardening activities. So, in the first phase and in the days adjacent to it, there is a fading in the cultures of all processes, as a result of which they become extremely susceptible to any negative influences.
The numbers presented below are not suitable for gardening activities also because they fall on the sterile signs of Leo, Aries, Aquarius or Gemini.
|March||1-3, 16-18, 30, 31|
A summer resident who follows all the above recommendations will be able to devote less time to plants in the future, because they will have strong immunity to diseases and pest attacks.
