600. Шесть соток. Six hundreds of free here is something like: Здесь что-то вроде: «Шесть соток — шетьсот квадратных метров земли. Столько в ссср выдавалось для желающих после основной работы поковыряться в земле, пожарить шашлык, но конечно прежде всего поковырятья в земле. Эта дача стала загородным хозяйством для человека и стала полем практических экспериментов. Первые предвестники «частничества» и «собственничества» — кооперативы — появилсь именно в сочетании со словом «дачный». Другой важный фактор формирующий облик дач стало ограничение в строительстве: этажность — 1; и материал — не камень. Влиял и общий дефицит всего: как материалов для сторительства так и обыкновенных бочек. Конечно туда свозилась старая мебель и старый хлам   — бумаги там ненужные... да в основном бумаги. Хлам по осени сжигали   — вместе с высохшими грушёвыми и яблоневыми ветками, а в золе пекли картошку и от того может быть что осень снова — было невыносимо грустно прощаться и теперь уже навсегда, с каким-нибудь конечно совершенно бесполезным, но тем быть может и дорогим бесконечно — элементом хлама.
