    Looks like my bigger mini greenhouse, 'cept mine is also clear, and it's in my living room.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Keep in mind that the "shady" side of the greenhouse can be insulated with nearly any kind of insulation without impeding the light...
    so even styrofoam insulation can be used there. (Or bales of hay or even bricks & anything that will cut down on heat loss.)

    Also, there are some thermostat outlets & other cheaper types used on farms, to turn on things like heaters & such
    before the temp gets to freezing. These may save your plants in the event of a hard freeze.
    Check around for them, as some are not too expensive at all, & an electric heater plugged into one may help your situation.
    Good luck! A greenhouse is a real learning experience!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    Thank you for the tips! I do have access to bales of straw. The little heater I have is thermostat-controlled and I do have timers to use if I need that (will also come in handy if I add shop lights to the shelves in the future, LOL, here I go).
