In my opinion, definitely not a good idea unless the plants are in all day
shade.  It's fine if the plants don't get any sun, but plants under clear plastic
will get very hot if exposed to sunlight, even in the winter.  Even if they don't
cook, they will break dormancy very early and then freeze at night.
