  1. I personally think blue berries are some of the best for the greenhouse.

    1. Blueberries????????????? At least plant Strawberries blueberries would be a complete waste of space

      1. I think you missed the mark. Yes, Strawberries would be good but so would Blueberries, corn, hops, any crop you only have to plant once and will continue to give you product as long as it thinks its in the right season which a greenhouse is supposed to trick it into doing.

    2. I find a great way to make money is to grow ancient fruit in the greenhouse, one ancient fruit takes 28 days to grow and produces 1 fruit every week after that. One of them sells for 550g. To go even further I would suggest turning it in to wine, which sells for 1650g.
