Can I grow bell peppers and tomatoes in the same greenhouse?

Can I grow various crops, e.g. tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, lettuce, and strawberries, all together in the same greenhouse? Or will this become an insurmountable issue for me?

It is advisable to avoid growing various crops in the same greenhouse. Each has its own optimum environment (temperature, light, humidity, etc.), fertilizer, and water requirements.

You may, however, produce a primary crop, such as tomatoes, and have a “few” of something different to experiment with. But, in such scenario, the system should be tailored to the primary crop. If you decide to grow a larger scale of more than one kind of vegetable, it is best to grow each in a separate greenhouse which will be set up for the required conditions for that crop. But, be certain that there is a market for that second or third crop. Tomatoes are the most easily sold. Some veggies will do well in certain places but not in others (for example cucumbers and lettuce).
