Just use clear... it's kinda cloudy & will reduce light a little anyway, but soon you'll appreciate the the heat from the sun. Greenhouses don't hold heat well. At night they release it. What was said about black barrels is right. A little tubing ran around, a sm pump from the pet shop, fish dept & you have radiant hot water heat, solar powered. I've found 5 gal jugs, flat & wide, low profile for camping. Takes up 6". I found mine in a hardware store. Paint em black, place against north wall, good to go!

And what Plantmanbee said about supplemental lighting too. You could go all year!
- I've used gauze as shading through the summer in grnhses, just tack it up for the summer on the inside, take it down for the winter. But a second layer using the clear plastic will also help insulate against excess heat.
