I receive emails from MOTHER EARTH NEWS and found these articles interesting. Hope you will too.

Thank you for this. It's almost 100 in the sun here lately & my maters have been sitting there on the vines green for a loooong time. I set up my shade cover today out of burlap.
Hope it works!

Great idea for the hooks, CapeCoddess! I have several of them around! Off to pamper my tomatoes. The others are in big cages..can just clip the material on them!

And one hour later! Maters are gonna be happy!
Sunshade AND irrigation! Yup they are spoiled! Wish I had done this a month ago! I have the planter posts from last year. And the window sheer material was bought at goodwill last winter to go over the strawberries this spring but I replanned. I use a lot of those clips in the garden! I hope I don't run out! I have already been an taker-backer from hubby rofl

Well done, CindiLou! Let me know as soon as yours start to turn, and I'll do the same. But how will we know if the shade made the diff or if it's just time for them to turn???
