Hot garden with your own hands – Option 1
Such beds are suitable for cucumbers, peppers and low tomatoes. I cook them that way. Dig a hole according to the size of the ridge.
Put in the lower layer of sawdust then – sen (last year may be dry grass) manure with sawdust, sprinkled over the layer of your hot Garden with your own hands – manufacturing options taken out, previously mixed with compost.
Each layer and a bed from above threw a solution of Extrasolar (20 ml per 10 L of water). In the end, all covered with the union by black spinning and through 2 weeks, in the twentieth of May, to make incisions crossed by spinning, the seedlings are planted and lodged for the first time under the arch of the film.
I water the plants 2 times a week, not weeds, because without weeds. Cucumbers after the appearance of leaf pinch 4-5-th. Once in 14 days, I realize a feeding with a solution of Mullein (1: 10) with the addition of Extrasolar. Fruit plants until the end of autumn: the soil underneath them is warm, heated, only when the garden is frozen under the arms that I cover with a spun-bond.
Hot garden with your own hands – option 2
We’ve been making our hotbeds since the fall. Dig 0.6 pit × 6 m deep Bayonet shovels Double back the top of the cabbage, carrots, beets and other plants (except potatoes, cucumber and tomato).
Immediately in the hole, we crush everything with a shovel, sprinkle with a layer of soil of approximately 5 cm, throw the solution of Baikal EM-1 and this way we go out for the winter.
In spring, a small layer of manure is thrown on this bed, then a layer of soil, we throw it all with hot water and cover it with a film under the shackles. When the soil heats up (weeks after the two), we sow the seeds of small fruit cucumbers, which, if necessary, are diluted or transplanted.
To prevent the plants from burning in the heat, we water them regularly with warm water and also place several containers of water on the bed. The yield is good!
Next year we grow onions, garlic or carrots in this bed and prepare a new place for the cucumbers.
Hot beds with your hands – reviews and additions
In addition, not long ago, I mastered the method of hot beds. Tomato seedlings are planted in warm beds in the open field. They are bulk beds of biological waste. In these beds seedlings grow twice as fast, but the main advantage – after transplanting the seedlings in the ground does not freeze to low frost or cold, and do not fertilize.
I plan to plant beds from the fall, strengthen the four sides with boards so that the beds are higher than the garden level by the width of the boards. I shoot weeds after weeding, peat, mullein, I add lawn soil.
The rule of thumb is that the bottom layer should consist of organic materials that decompose slowly, such as paper, dry, thick branches after trimming, and small wood sawdust. The next layer: weeds, food scraps from vegetables and fruits, vegetable debris. They can be replaced with peat and grass. Sprinkle the garden with topsoil. You can sow cider, but I’ve never tried it, it doesn’t have enough strength after weeding and summer conservation.
For the winter, I cover the bed with a film, so that all this is well endowed.
In the spring, I dig a shovel only in the top layer of a bed, I remove a film just for Perkoski. And certainly, pour hot water. Immediately cover again with a film to start the floor heating process. During days 3-4, I plant seedlings not only tomatoes but also peppers and cucumbers.
I plan the seedlings for a week or days in 10 days earlier than usual. She used the covering material only once or twice when spring was very cold or prolonged. Never once did the seedlings freeze. I strongly encourage all gardeners to try on their warm beds.
