The green houses are certainly helping keep the plants warm. the overnight temp in the 4x4 hotbox was 70 degrees. The mid-day temp in the green house is 82. The problem is that the Holland plants tend to flag at mid-day. I think the heat is causing them to wilt a bit during the day. I have given them a spray of water, and they perk up a bit. They seem to recover by evening and look fine in the morning. I think I'm going to have to consider putting in a misting system earlier than I planned. Apparently, the Holland plants aren't all that happy with the direct sunlight through the green house plastic. The Sherwood plants in the Big House are fine (however, they are covered by a 30 percent shade cloth and the temps are about 5 degrees cooler than in the Guest House.)
