What are the benefits of peas and why is it profitable to grow them?
Man discovered useful and tasty properties of peas many centuries ago. Even the ancient Indians, Chinese, Romans and even Greeks used it as a food rich in proteins and carbohydrates, which are perfectly absorbed by the human body, saturate it and serve as a preventive measure for various diseases. For example, doctors note that with frequent consumption of peas, a person's risk of getting cancer is reduced, and the walls of blood vessels are strengthened. Peas are recommended for those undergoing treatment for kidney stones, and green peas are very beneficial for the bones.
But these are not all the useful properties of peas. It turns out that this vegetable contains substances that help to quickly overcome fatigue. By the way, for those who work mentally, dietitians recommend eating green peas every day (a tablespoon each), which can be added to different dishes. Well, vitamin C and iron, which are abundant in peas, have a positive effect on the immune system.
Peas are also an excellent livestock feed that is given to animals in the form of cereals. That is why growing peas for grain can be both a profitable business idea in the country for men and an excellent source of income for land owners and, of course, farms.
To get the first early harvest, peas are planted starting in mid-April, when the snow has completely melted and the sun warmed the ground a little. A little later, two or three weeks later, the sowing is repeated - by the way, its harvest will be necessary, by the way, during mass home harvesting, since green peas are successfully combined with most vegetables and are included in the recipe for many winter preserves. And finally, the last sowing time - the end of May, will provide your family with a tasty treat in the second half of summer.
The best time to plant peas is the days after the daffodils bloom
But the estimated dates cannot guarantee favorable weather at this time, especially since the climatic conditions of individual regions differ significantly. And therefore, nature itself has been considered the most convenient and reliable planting calendar from time immemorial. Experience shows that the best time to sow peas is the days after the daffodils bloom.
Along the northwestern outskirts of the Karakum sands from the Sarykamysh depression to the Caspian Sea, an ancient channel stretches for 550 km, called the Uzboy, along which, it is believed, several thousand years ago the Amu Darya flowed. But then, due to some whim of nature, the regular flow stopped, resuming only occasionally, and always for a short time.
Uzboy finally turned into a dry channel, which, however, remained a reliable reference point for caravans heading from Khorezm to Khorasan and back.
The ruins of caravanserais of the 10-13th centuries, the ruins of fortresses and citadels, ancient cemeteries and the remains of cult monuments and mausoleums testify to the fact that life was once on these deserted shores.
At the same time, in the “middle course” of the Uzboy there are still many sections that give the traveler the impression of a living river.
Here, along the river bed, there are terraces characteristic of river valleys, and in the beds themselves you can see numerous lakes filled with water of an intense blue color. These water mirrors are surrounded by thickets of tamarisk, reeds, reeds and some other bizarre plants, as if sparkling and shimmering in the sun.
In combination with the bottomless blue sky and the yellowness of the dunes leaving beyond the horizon, the opening picture sometimes resembles an oasis inviting to rest.
And only by looking closely, you will notice that the shores of these lakes, so attractive from afar, are bordered by a dazzling white strip of salt. This is dead water. A twig dropped into it is literally covered with salt crystals before our eyes.
Powerful salt layers, several meters thick, come to the surface here and there.
As for the bizarre plants, these are the so-called “uzboy roses” - dried branches and stems, around which salt and wind have formed crystals of an unusual shape for many years. It is they, these crystals, that sparkle with all the colors of the rainbow in the rays of the scorching sun.
Lakes near the town of Dordul are mesmerizing with their views, the water in which has a rich pink color.
