Kitchen Garden - Vegetables and fruits
Even though vegetation season os so short, 90-100 days, almost ever lasting light during short
summer months compensates for it. There are many vegetables which can be grown on a free land.
Especially potatoes, which are very popular in northern Sweden (I do not grow them....).
More sensitive vegetables like for instance tomatoes, need to be grown in a green house.
Many of vegetables can be grown in April at home or green house and when risk for cold nights is
over, they can be planted on a free land, like: pumpkin and squash. Peas can be also grown, but they
are very sensitive for cold soil and seeds can easily rotten.
List of vegetables which can be grown in the northern Sweden would be long, if you are interested, this wonderful book can help:
