Maria Vorontsova. Visiting Nagovitsyn family in Polesye, or being in a fairy tale 11.03.2019 09:08:51A low-mowed road for the car leads to the Nagovitsyns' domain, that is very comfortable and pleasant. It was feeling that there would be an unusual meeting, an unusual place when we were driving. And so it happened.
Galina, owner of domain, met us and we immediately went to the garden.
It was very mysterious: the forest around, the road, and a clearing among the forest, and a vegetable garden in that clearing. Then we found that Galina has a lot of such clearings: cabbage grows in one separate place, flower gardens grow in another, watermelons and melons in the third, pumpkins grows in the fourth. A caring mistress thought everything through and everything was located in that way so the sun was enough for all the plants, and all of them were protected from the wind.
The Alexander and Galina grow beds as follows: they mow grass and laid with ridges, and on the top they laid the straw with a large layer. The straw rots over time and gives fertile soil that is comfortable for plants. And this soil is wet. Plants in such a rows need to be less watering. In some places they added compost. There are also classic beds with carrots.
It was a pleasure to visit Alexander and Galina. It seems to be a forest, but it was so cozy and well maintained. It was clear that the owners worked hard with their caring hands with love! It was beautiful and mysterious, like in a fairy tale!
