    Why do my plants wilt in the day & perk up at night?

    I have a variety of herb & veg plants in my garden. I have parsley, dill, oregano in the soil & tomato & cucumber in my plastic greenhouse.

    The past few days, I have found that the cucumber & tomato wilt during the day & the leaves go saggy but during the night, they seem to stiffen up again. Then the same happens the next day....

    The same also happens with my dill & oregano plant. Wilt in the day, the branches seem to sag but perk up again at night.

    Also my parsley is turning yellow.

    Is it too hot for them? How do I get them to stop sagging? Do they need more water? I water them twice per week.
