If you would like to grow those warm weather veggies-tomato, squash family, peppers-those are not only summer growers, they require a lot of heat degree days to not just grow the plants, but to ripen the fruit. Have you figured out how to heat your greenhouse for cold weather growing conditions? I mostly grow cool weather crops in the winter-spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, sugar snap peas, and the like. Whatever you do, there are scarce sources for veggie starts now, so you need to get your seed sources and starter material together now so you can get seeds started while there is still a lot of daylight and warmth to get them going!
Something else to consider-is your greenhouse soil fertile enough to handle a 12 month crop rotation? You may need an extra dose of compost in the fall to give your winter plants the nutrients they need for winter growth. "In the wild," fall into winter is a time for normal soil to recharge itself and put itself to sleep for winter, for worms and other soil critters to feed off deadening leaf and plant debris, all so the next spring, the soil is all charged back up for everybody to grow optimally.
Good luck and have fun with it! If you don't mind sharing your plans for an economical greenhouse that you can build yourself, that would be great! The cheapest backyard greenhouse I've found is around $600-I'd like to build my own to save $$$, but I don't know how!
