Hot heat, here is the decalogue to save the garden

-

From pasta and rice cooking water to ‘insulating’ straw. The secrets to save the gardens and the earth from the effects of drought and the scorching heat, protect water, a precious water resource and help 45% of Italians who dedicate part of their free time to the care of vegetables and plants, come from Coldiretti and flowers, in pots or in the ground. Coldiretti with the green tutors of Campagna Amica has in fact elaborated a vademecum to deal with the restriction measures on the use of drinking water, starting with the ban on watering launched by many Municipalities, while in Lombardy a state of emergency has been declared. and the red zone of thirst is now in danger of spreading to almost the whole country. Thus, in the face of the scorching heat, here is Coildiretti’s Decalogue to save the garden from drought: 1. Recycle the cooking water of pasta, rice and vegetables to water and fertilize the soil2. Collect water with bowls during the shower (the one without soap) and use it to wet the plants 3. Use saucers to collect the water that drains after wetting the plants and use it to wet other plants4. Cover the earth of the pots with straw to keep humidity 5. Use special water-holding gels for slow release 6. Lift the pots from the ground, especially on terraces and balconies with bottle caps or polystyrene to reduce the transmission of heat from the flooring, also detach them from the walls7. Build DIY drip irrigation systems with ceramic bottles or cones 8. Water in the evening so as not to evaporate the water and avoid the slow effect of the water on leaves and vegetables that can burn them9. Pay attention to the exposure needs of the plants (sun, shade, etc.), if possible move the pots from south-facing balconies and terraces to those facing north10. Use shading in the hottest hours and when the sun is higher to reduce the evapotranspiration of the plants and the drying of the vegetables Coldiretti emphasizes that in a moment of very serious emergency it is necessary that the water resources be concentrated on human use agricultural but with some small updates it is also possible to help the plants on vegetable gardens and terraces to resist, waiting for the long-awaited rain. Coldiretti explains that, faced with the ban on watering, a good solution can be the reuse of the cooking water of pasta, rice or vegetables which, once cooled, will give relief to the plants but will also fertilize the soil with the substances released from the food. cooked. For the same purpose, the water used to wash the salad is obviously also fine or you can even think of recovering the water from the shower with basins, at least the one without soap. To allow the earth of the pots to remain humid, it is then important to mulch it, or, as Coldiretti indicates, to cover it with straw which will also release beneficial substances and promote soil biodiversity as it represents a habitat for useful insects. But not only. To save water, Coldiretti states that you can use the drip irrigation system also built with DIY: just fill a bottle with water and close it with the cap where a very small hole will be made with a needle, then turn it over and place it on the ground. Gradually this will make a drop fall. The bottom of the inverted bottle must also be pierced to avoid the creation of a vacuum that would prevent the drop from falling. According to Coldiretti, this system can last several days ensuring a minimum of humidity for our plants even if there are special water-holding gels for slow release.Through a tube connected to a container full of water (covered to avoid the proliferation of mosquitoes ) you can also use the ceramic cones, inserted into the earth, which will slowly release moisture into the soil. For those who can do it, Coldiretti points out that the advice to water in the evening remains valid in order to optimize the volume of water used which does not evaporate immediately due to solar radiation. However, Coldiretti warns, we must also pay attention to the characteristics of the plants, evaluating which ones need sun and which ones prefer shade, perhaps moving the pots from south to north or using shading sheets during the hottest hours. it was above all the elderly who dedicated themselves to the cultivation of the vegetable garden, often mindful of a time lived in the countryside, now Coldiretti observes that the passion is spreading even among the youngest and among people who are completely starved of cultivation techniques. A phenomenon supported by the work of 27 thousand companies, with about 200 thousand employees and 30 thousand cultivated hectares, engaged in the tricolor horticultural sector, an excellence of Made in Italy worth over 2.57 billion euros.
