Country house and vegetable growing: business with pleasure

Environmentalists and doctors have long sounded the alarm about environmental pollution and the resulting deterioration in food quality. This means that the owners of summer cottages and vegetable gardens are in the most advantageous position. Dacha-grown tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini and cabbage guarantee a nutritious and healthy diet for the whole family

Among vegetable crops, there is not a single one that would not benefit people. Ideally, vegetables and fruits should make up half of a person's diet.

They have everything that the body needs for proper functioning: proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, pectins, fiber and organic acids. These substances are involved in metabolism, give us energy, normalize blood pressure, break down cholesterol and contribute to excellent well-being.

Country vegetable growing as a storehouse of vitamins

Dacha vegetable growing allows you to saturate the diet with natural vitamins that cannot be bought in a pharmacy. Spinach, white cabbage and cauliflower contain vitamin K, which regulates protein synthesis, calcium absorption, and ensures normal blood clotting.

Normal metabolism, proper functioning of the stomach and liver, good vision - all this requires vitamin B2. By growing and eating bell peppers, peas, garlic and parsley, you can secure your daily intake. Legumes, sorrel, herbs improve carbohydrate metabolism and strengthen the nervous system.

Sources of carotene (vitamin A) are carrots and pumpkin, vitamin C - cabbage, parsley, pepper and horseradish. Their absence in the diet undermines the human immune system. Cabbage is a very valuable vegetable. In fermented form, it contains even more vitamin C than fresh. And pumpkin is generally considered a dietary food product. Juice and raw pulp normalize the work of the cardiovascular and digestive systems. Pumpkin porridge and puree can be prepared for babies, the elderly and sick people.

Cucumbers can be considered a national product of Russians. They are consumed fresh, salted and pickled. Their nutritional value is low due to the low content of vitamins. But fresh cucumbers have antipyretic and diuretic properties. Beets, which have a unique chemical composition, are also an irreplaceable vegetable on our table.

When planting vegetables on their site, gardeners-enthusiasts know what kind of top dressing was used to increase it. When buying vegetables in a supermarket, you cannot be sure that instead of vitamins and fiber, we do not add mineral fertilizers, pesticides to our pots, and do not eat genetically modified foods.

Vegetable growing as a source of aesthetic pleasure and happiness

Probably, each of us at least once in our life got to the dacha to someone from our acquaintances or friends who are keen on growing vegetables. Have you noticed with what delight and pride their eyes shine when they lead guests around the site, showing off their vegetable beds, where a bountiful harvest is ripening? With what pleasure do they talk about their successes? How are they hospitably treated with canned food, prepared and rolled up in jars?

Increasingly, vegetable growing is becoming not only a source of quality products. It stops in a hobby, gives an opportunity for self-realization and communication according to interests, gives a person the joy of life and pride in his work. So, in vegetables grown in the country, the therapeutic effect is not limited only to their nutritional and vitamin value. They give people a sense of happiness and fulfillment in their own lives.
