I get that tulle is used for pest control. Somehow, I also got it in my head that it can be good for shade too? Is that right? I bought some tulle, put it over my lettuces (getting up to 92 here this weekend!). It's definitely keeping bugs out. And it looks slightly, and I mean slightly shadier than before. There is definitely shade if I double it over. To tulle for shade, or not to tulle? That is the question. If not, what's the best for shade?

My garden center carries burlap, I love the stuff, my plants did fine when we hit several stretches of 90-100 degree weather last summer. I don't think of tulle for shade, maybe others will chime in. I've also used old thin bed sheets.
