Vegetables were grown in the open air in Taimyr during the Soviet era.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. In the village of Zhdaniha – this settlement is located 27 kilometers from Hatanga – they harvested potatoes. Potatoes were planted in open ground in the spring as an experiment.

The initiator was the territorial department head Vera Cherepanova. And on September 1, the village residents went to the beds and dug up their first bag of potatoes, the Nash Taimyr Telegram channel reports.

Prior to this experiment, vegetables in the open field were grown in the village only in Soviet times. And this was done mainly by exiles and war prisoners for their own needs. They made earthen terraces with a wooden boarding and planted potatoes and even cabbage there.

Previously, Russian scientists have grown melons and watermelons in the Arctic, and fresh greenery in Novaya Zemlya. Also, we told that cabbage took root best of all in the polar farmlands.
