I live in Southeastern Idaho, sadly for a gardener the growning season is short, particularly if you live at 5000 ft elevation, zone 3-4 and have a love for all things green through zone 10!
Hence my only hope other than a move south is to purchase a greenhouse. Can anyone make suggestions about where I may want to begin with a budget of $1,000 - $5,000? I am thinking of a minimum size of 8'x12' and working from there. I want to use this through the year and the temperature usually drops below freezing toward the end of October-April, sometimes even into May. What would the essentials be? Where should I start? Space is not an issue.
Thank you so much to anyone who can make suggestions.

Just curious as to what you bought for a greenhouse and how do you like it? I am still considering Sunglo.
