  PLASTIC TUNNEL
by matcrazy1
 
 

There were quite many small greenhouses located by local houses in Rudaminy. Usually they looked similar to that one on my picture. They were not fit with glass but with plastic foil which created more a kind of a plastic tunnel than a greenhouse.

As I know the only quasi-private and relatively effective agriculture allowed in the former Soviet Union consisted of very small ploughlands with such plastic tunnels put by local, state-owned houses. Locals were allowed to grow limited amount of vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers) and fruit trees (apples, cherries) for private use there.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
