I don't have a greenhouse yet, so the things I want to put there to extend my zone are currently in the house. Turmeric, ginger and lemon grass are in here right now. I also end up with random tomato plants started off cuttings, to hold over to start early next year (this year's batch just got cut two days ago.) And sweet potato vines for winter greens, decor, and slips for next year. I tend to pick up plants cheap this time of year, and leave them in the house till spring. Give me a month, my list in the house will be longer :)
And somewhere on Permies I recall a thread on figs that people move in and out for winter.

I only have ornamental plants inside - the ones that typically absorb noxious off-gassing from the built environment.
Being in the Temperate/Subtropic zones, don't really need to have food plants sheltering inside, though in summer seedlings and other sun tender plants either reside on the verandah. in dappled sunlight (underneath shade cloth), or rarely inside on extreme heat days - if the heat kills them, they're not hardy enough.
