Everyone knows that the Astrakhan region famous for its decades of cultivation, excellent taste and quality, tomatoes and watermelons! But until the revolution of 1917 and during the Soviet planned economy Astrakhan region supplying their products not only its own population, but the North of Russia, and even other states. Fruits, vegetables and fish products are distinguished by a special taste and high quality. But few know that once flourished in the area gardening. About this book tells us, and Michael Rybushkina "Memoirs of Astrakhan." This book – a unique source of information on the history of Astrakhan, a rarity. The idea of republishing it belonged to the regional scientific library named after Krupskaya. It's no secret that the soil and climate in the Astrakhan region is not conducive to the development of gardening, however, our nation is distinguished zeal and diligence, so – still have the soil "… Easy to proizrascheniyu delicate fruit." Beginning in 1640, in the Astrakhan region first began to pay attention to gardening, first introduced a new watering system, and then began to develop more gardening faster. At the time of Peter I had established a special office, garden, and in 1752 the breeding orchards and management office was mandated to "Hungarians Parobichu," as he calls the author.
This skillful gardener, not only cultivated a great grapes, but also engaged in cultivation of fruit trees. After his death, gardening went into decline. Later, during the Soviet era, gardening again was at the height, but in the last 10 birthday with his development leaves something to be desired. Certainly, the government is concerned about the return of lost status nationwide garden. The problem is not even the fact that farmers have forgotten how to grow good crops, but the fact that it is difficult to sell their products. For example, numerous checks on the traffic police post, with the loss of precious time, while moving trucks with fruits and vegetables lead to products that are wasted. Another problem is the processing of products: all processors (at the time of 2005 2007godov) bankrupt and undergo "rehabilitation." But despite all the difficulties, the farmers and villagers continue at least once engaged in personal part-time farms, and, when the government will eliminate all the other problems that prevent the sale of products, I think entrepreneurs will be more. So, let's hope that soon the situation on the market selhoz.tovarov improve our area again and gain the status of "All-vegetable garden."
