President Lukashenko donates home-grown vegetables to children in orphanage, rest home

Potatoes, cucumbers, tomatoes, zucchini, melons, and watermelons. The first batch of the harvest from the fields of the official residence of the President of Belarus Drozdy arrived August 18 at Minsk's rest home and and Children's Town of the Leninsky district of Minsk. The President's youngest son Nikolai Lukashenko delivered environmentally friendly products grown by him and his father. 

Harvesting at the presidential residence continues these days too. As well as all over the country. Belarusian agrarians had to adjust to the recent heatwave. They can, however, challenge nature's whims thanks to competent breeding. Thus they adapt high-yielding sorts to suit Belarusian weather conditions.  The head of state expressed an opinion that watermelons and melons could be grown in Belarus, and last year he already harvested some. Today you can see watermelons cultivated all over the country, including in private gardens of individual Belarusians.  Moreover, their quality is not inferior to that of southern watermelons.
