That should be plenty of sun shine.

Growing crops is as much about plenty of day light for 7 to 12 hrs. a day as it is about hours of direct bright sunlight .
Come a few really hot airless days you'll be happy some of your plants have a slightly shaded aspect .. tender salad plants tend thrive in slightly shaded areas rather than in vicious bright sunshine lasting for hours on end .
