I’ll be using these structures more as greenhouses for seedlings rather than as season extenders.

The smaller structure has a two layers of shade cloth sandwiched between two layers of plastic.  The shade cloth is to protect virgin (no exposure to natural sunlight yet) plants.  A small, thermostatically controlled electric heater will be used to protect from frost.  This hoophouse is already filling up quickly.
