The only thing that is also stopping me is a lack of space and supplies, could easily rig up a irrigation system like you guys have off the existing drip at my house.
I'd like to grow my own shrubbery and annuals as well, if I get good at it.
Poinsettias require greenhouse for winter flowers. You have to trick them to bloom at that time. I don't have experience with poinsettias, this is just some random knowledge that I've gathered.
