  • Shade options for your vegetable garden

    It’s been hot and humid the last few weeks!  I was hopeful that this summer was going to be idyllic…at least we got pop up rain storms to keep things hydrated. These ninety-degree days, however, are putting us on track for some serious heat and some of our vegetables will love it and some will not.  I know we can’t change the ambient air temperature on a ninety-degree day, but we can provide some shade for our plants on the hottest days of the summer with reasonable results.
