Growing Vegetables in Bulgaria

With four definite seasons and fertile land, Bulgaria is a good place for those who want to grow their own fruits and vegetables. There is a long tradition of home produce and agriculture in Bulgaria. Many villagers still grow and preserve their own food and it's very much a way of life outside of the large cities.

As the climate is temperate, there are a wide range of fruits and vegetables that can be grown in Bulgaria. Melons. root vegetables, tomatoes, chillies, peaches, grapes and many more. Even lemons can be grown in large pots if they are brought inside for the cold winter months. Obviously some fruits and vegetables do better than others but on the whole you can grow almost anything in Bulgaria thanks to the relatively long growing season and good weather.

From March until October you could have home grown produce and reduce your shopping bills. You could also invest in a polytunnel or greenhouse to grow more produce. With careful planning you could be harvesting fresh fruit and vegetables for most of the year, and there's nothing better than eating something you have grown yourself!

At certain times of the year you might find you have so much fresh produce that you can't eat it all. Finding out how to store the excess for consumption during winter is easy and well worth the effort. Imagine opening your cupboards and seeing lots of jars just waiting, or a freezer full of lovely crops waiting to be eaten.

Whether you decide to jar, jam, pickle or freeze the excess is up to you, but it's fun and can help provide for your family.

      Another way that I grew up. You sure can't beat your own home grown produce.
