Thanks guys.

From everything I read about the greenhouse business, it seems that only the spring season for selling bedding plants has a chance of being profitable. 20-30 years ago, a greenhouse would grow fall mums and then Christmas poinsettias to stay busy year-round. But with the modern reality of lower prices due to international competition, those two products are not nearly as profitable as they used to be.

I'm sure I could grow something in the greenhouse over the summer and fall, but that is the time of year when anything will grow in the outdoor garden, so there's not much point.
