I would like to grow our food organically in Minot, ND. We are new to the area so I am not sure if plants can be sustained long in a greenhouse in such cold climates. Is there anything I can do to keep food growing all year round or should I just relent and buy it during the really cold months?

I have absolutely no idea, but wanted to mention that my grandmother taught elementary school in Minot in the 1930s. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

With a heated greenhouse you could, but that would be more expensive than buying from the local grocer. Or you can try hydoponics in the basement with growing lights.
