I often pondered the meaning of the word "gardener". We say it many times, it has become common, but a gardener is a person who creates a garden. So our family has also been engaged in this noble cause for the second decade. Our gardening is 12 years old. The site here is low, on blue clay, and that says it all. All my attempts to grow apple trees for ten years ended in failure.
Plants remained frail, did not bloom, froze out. But in my soul all lived one desire - to have real garden.
And so two years ago, in the spring of 2004, we bought a neighboring plot, which had a rather neglected orchard of ten apple trees aged 10-12 years old, of unknown varieties, with a small garden house. There were also berry bushes, as well as a few cherries. The husband immediately called this site "khutor". And the truth is - there is no electricity, there is no fence and a lot of other things that are necessary for a dacha life are not.
In the spring of 2004, we got down to work. Correctly say: "The eyes are afraid, but the hands are doing"... The apple trees did not endure the winter of 2003-2004 well, they were like "homeless people". Lanky, thin, all in lichen, with frost-cracks, with lacerations. Moreover, they also stood in the water. Throughout the season, we dug drainage, mowed the grass, covered the near-trunk circles, sprayed the crown, pruned and cut branches and twigs, painted the trunks, repaired wounds and did more, God knows what hard work. And still, even these efforts did not help: we lost one apple tree, there are nine of them left. But these were no longer "homeless people", but, as the neighbors say, well-groomed apple-brides standing on ankle feet.
The branches of one of the apple trees - it turned out to be the Melba variety, however, it turned out only in the next season - I stretched them, bending them to the ground, and throughout the season I plucked a one-year growth over the second new leaf on all branches. Thus, there was a reduction in the crown, its thorough thinning and rejuvenation of the branches. On all the other apple trees, we did the same work to remove and rejuvenate the growing branches.
Sections were made above the bifurcations located in the middle of the branch. All the big work yielded results only in the next year. And in the first spring, the apple trees never really bloomed. There were about a dozen apples on them without any varietal characteristics.
Autumn and the next spring passed in worries: they painted the trunks, loosened the tree-trunk circles, cut the grass, sprayed it, fed - and the garden bloomed. And already in the fall, the apple harvest was simply fantastic. They were large, clean, and varietal characteristics appeared. Although I am not a specialist, the main varieties - Antonovka of two types, Glory to the Winner, Autumn Striped, Melba - could already be identified. Other apple varieties have not yet been assigned to a specific variety. Their fruits are winter, lie well and are stored until February. Here one more problem came to light: few apples on trees are bad, and a lot of them are also bad - you need to somehow process and store them. And our friends helped us in this. They were provided with apples, and I got help.
Thus, my dream of a garden came true, although there are still a lot of things to do, ideas, it would be only health.

He took a lot of pills and realized that if he died, he would not die from illness, but from drugs. He switched to vegetarianism and soon threw all the medicines in the trash as he recovered completely.
Panagiotis purchased the farm and created the Family Estate. In his opinion, bare, cracked ground is sick and can be cured with permaculture vegetation. In Nature, disease is unnatural.

The tool today is the most environmentally friendly and harmless method of healing and protecting plants from various diseases and pests.
The fact is that when plants are healthy, they quickly produce the protein they need for growth, especially for foliage formation. In weakened plants, this protein is produced more slowly. Plants mainly produce carbohydrates.
According to the laws of nature, weakened animals or plants cannot survive. Its task is not to allow to give offspring to weak representatives of the species, because this can cause degeneration. For this very reason, predators kill sick or weakened herbivores, because they simply cannot cope with strong and healthy ones and cannot catch up.
Mites and insects mainly feed on carbohydrates. Therefore, they attack weakened plants, because it is they that contain carbohydrates in large quantities.
The use of a Healthy Garden normalizes the protein-carbohydrate balance in plant cells, which protects them, and in some cases even relieves diseases.
The drug is a universal regulator of biochemical processes in plant cells. For this reason, plants that are constantly cultivated by the Healthy Garden are free of nitrates and chemical toxins.
Many summer residents and owners of private households on their plots grow vegetables and fruits to meet the needs of the family. They think that if they do not use pesticides and mineral fertilizers in large quantities, their products are environmentally friendly.
This is a complete delusion, because even a hundred kilometers from any large city, the environment is polluted by exhaust gases and industrial waste that fall on the soil with rain.
When you really want to grow environmentally friendly and healthy products on your own plot, you need to start treating it with this product in spring or soak fruits and vegetables from your own plot in a solution.

"Notebook Rostov" under the heading "Economy" has prepared for you a new lunar calendar of the gardener and the gardener. Do not forget to look after the site so that it pleases with a good harvest.
On Monday, August 10, the Moon turns into a more garden-friendly sign of Taurus, which means it is time for large-scale work in the garden (just do not overdo it, big magnetic storms are expected in the middle of the week and health can be upsetting). Soak and germinate seeds, water the ground. In order to enhance the growth of shoots, vaccinate and pinch. The bouquet cut that day will be stored for a long time. The only thing not to do on August 10 is to loosen the soil at the roots of the plants and replant them.
On Tuesday, August 11, the Moon will remain in the sign of Taurus, which means that the recommendations of the previous day (and prohibitions) are preserved. Take care of harvesting plants for long-term storage and preserving for the winter: salt, ferment cabbage, dry vegetables and fruits, and also harvest juices.
On Wednesday, August 12, the Moon goes into the sign of Gemini, and this is the ideal time to plant climbing plants: peas, strawberries, melons and beans, as well as beautiful ornamental shrubs that spread along the ground. We boldly loosen the ground, thin out and weed the garden. It is good to spray the garden from pests, to carry out sanitary cleaning, pinching and grafting. Refrain from planting and transplanting herbaceous plants.
On Thursday, August 13, the Moon still remains in Gemini, Thursday's recommendations are preserved, and if you managed to take care of the site, start harvesting fruits and root crops for long-term storage. Collect herbs and flowers. There will be no problems with bulbs and tubers if they are dug up on this lunar day. If you cut the grass, it will grow very slowly.
On Friday, August 14, the night star remains in the same sign, so in addition to the maintenance work, you can do some cutting flowers (your bouquet will not fade for a long time), preparing firewood, canning and baking. Refrain from pinching and diving roots today, and also work less with garden tools.
On Saturday, August 15, the Moon passes into the sign of Cancer. You can soak seeds, loosen the soil, and plant and water plants. Transplant annuals, they will give a good harvest. You can feed your garden and vegetable garden by adding compost and organic fertilizers. It's good to start preparing food for the winter table. There are also quite a few bans on this day: you should not use pesticides, bake treats and get cabbage from a barrel. Not favorable: sowing and planting climbing, woody and herbaceous plants. Root vegetables sent to the cellar will not be stored for a long time.

Four GARDENS have been planted around the garden: Apple, Pear, Cherry and Plum. Each Garden consists of 55 trees of the same species, but different varieties. The trees are planted in three circles with diameters: d1 = 16.14 m. - 12 fathoms Smaller d2= 24.21 m. - 18 s. Smaller D3 = 32.28 m. - 24 s. The smaller one. In the first circle, 12 trees were planted with a step of 4.22 m. - 2.5 sazhens Chernyaev. In the second circle, 18 trees were planted with a step of 4.22 m. In the third circle, 25 trees were planted with a step of 4.04 m. - 3 s. The smaller one. A prerequisite: place a pear orchard diagonally opposite the apple orchard, and a cherry orchard opposite the plum one.
In the middle of each garden there are glades with a radius of 8.07 m. In the center of the glades there is a table and wooden benches. In every garden, on the sunny side of the meadows, you need to plant flowers. In the apple orchard - tulips, mimosas, poppies. In the pear garden - roses, gladioli and some blue flowers. In the plum garden - flowers of yellow, red, white - these are dahlias, carnations and others in color, In the cherry orchard there should be blue, white, green colors. Each garden enhances one particular energy. It is the one that helps children to gain certain knowledge, therefore, their own subjects will be studied in each kindergarten.
Between Yablonev and Plum orchards to the east, set a dozen decks with bees. Lay a raspberry tree between the Cherry and Grushev orchards.
The figure shows the plan of the family estate of S.I. Lazarev "Lukomorye", which he created with a needle and thread on a canvas measuring 50 x 120 cm (cross stitch in a scale of 1: 200).
The plan of the family estate of S. I. Lazarev "Lukomorye"
On the territory of the Garden, you can plant any trees and shrubs that your soul wants. I want to plant other fruit trees, and I want to plant a mountain ash, here is a lilac, here is a Christmas tree or a cedar, etc. So one birch is bored, next to it in the grove, mix maple and linden.
Question from reader Elena Golovenko: Very interesting. Why is there a pear orchard against an apple tree, a cherry tree against a plum tree? Why 55 trees? What energy does each garden enhance?
Alexander Savrasov in the book "Knowledge stored by dolmens" conveys Dolmen's thoughts: “Make round gardens and groves - each with a diameter of 100-200 m, the minimum size of the garden - with a radius of 20 m. A prerequisite: place a pear orchard diagonally opposite the apple orchard, and a cherry orchard opposite the plum one. In the middle of each garden there are glades with a radius of 15-20 m for a large garden and at least 8 m for a small garden. In the center of the meadows there is a table and wooden benches. In every garden, on the sunny side of the meadows, you need to plant flowers. In the apple orchard - tulips, mimosas, poppies, In the pear orchard - roses, gladioli and some blue flowers. In the plum garden - flowers of yellow, red, white - these are dahlias, carnations and others in color, In the cherry orchard there should be blue, white, green colors. Fruit gardens are pollen, nectar and air filled with divine energy. You can just look at fruit trees and be full. Fruits, like vegetables, are the most important miracle on Earth. You will soon understand this for yourself. The apple orchard is a man's heart. Here it (the heart) begins to generate a special energy inherent only in a man. The apple orchard helps a young man to become a man, turns an old man into a young man, and a man never grows old, and the Energy of Love will never leave him. The apple is the first fruit to grow in the Garden of Eden, and the apple tree is the first tree. Apples should be eaten. A green apple helps balance energies when a person is excited or depressed. A red apple warms up from the inside, compensates for solar energy. Sometimes you just want to hold it in your hands. It's good when apples are mixed in a basket on the table in a dwelling - green, red, yellow... The second tree is a pear. This is a woman's heart, or rather, a song of a woman's heart. A woman has a different energy, it can be compared to a string that sounds all the time. Therefore, a woman lives with emotion, not with her mind. She needs such energy to give birth to children. This energy makes a woman hardy, makes it easier to endure difficulties in life. The more children there are, the stronger a woman becomes, for the love that she gives to her children warms the world and the world protects her. Treat mothers with many children with trepidation and love, for a mother with many children is a symbol of life. The pear fruit itself resembles a woman's body, as if a drop of water is ready to break off and water everything that it falls on. A woman must live with a man. The energy of a man and the energy of a woman, each on its own, are sterile. When these energies are together, they merge into one, which emits the sound of Eternity, immortality. A man and a woman strive for each other, for it is so arranged by the Creator that life never stops. You should not keep a pear on the table when you want to take it and eat it. It is good to eat two or three or more at the same time - the effect is better. Cherry Orchard - according to its energies, it is the head of a person and the upper part of the spine. The spine is the antenna and the purity of thinking. The healthier the spine, the clearer the thoughts. This means that the cherry is responsible for the thoughts of a person. The purer the thoughts (thoughts), the purer the energy of this person. Each garden is associated with energies with a complex of planets. It is the garden (in the form of a monoculture) that acts, that is, wakes up and enhances one or another energy of a Human. Gardens and groves in the form of monocultures in outer space are nothing more than a mixed forest. But it is in outer space, not on Earth. The goal of the Gardens is to increase the speed of thought in children. And the speed of thought, like living energy, can grow and grow precisely in outer space, with the help of the planets with which these gardens are connected. The word HAPPINESS planted by a cedar, enhances and unifies the energies of the gardens. And, as you know, the cedar collects the cosmic energy that the planets emit, accumulates it and then gives it to its intended purpose, that is, this energy is used by people for their normal life. " My Gardens have 55 trees. Number 55 - included in the Divine Row: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, …
