As you know, most of the territory of mother Russia belongs to the so-called “zone of risky agriculture”: in the Northern regions even in summer it can hit freezing; on the South and East at times devastating fall rains. But there are the hardest to wait for good — slow and warm, and most importantly, the timely rain, especially when the plants are growing. In the old days in drought farmers ward with icons and prayers go to sources reputed to be in the country saints and asked the Almighty life-giving rain. But, perhaps, no wonder people had the saying: “it doesn’t Rain where I ask, where reap and mow”, that is, when he is no longer needed and even harmful.
Today, not only the villagers, but even the citizens — gardeners-gardeners — on their six acres is not waiting for “the mercy of nature” and seek to have any source of water: someone the site is located on the banks of the river, somewhere built a pond for collective use, and someone dug a well or drilled a well. But even in the presence of water to pour from a watering can is only good for the flower beds or multiple beds — large plantations and requires a lot of time. In the hot summer watering until the last spine — you see, under the first are already dry and have to start watering again.
