New Sunshade

Post  a0628h0427 on 5/10/2011, 9:30 am

I broke down and constructed a sunshade last night. With all the upper 90s weather we've had for the past month, it's looking to be a long summer! I hope this gives my longsuffering plants some relief!

Thanks for posting pictures! I don't think I'll get anything up this summer, but I've promised myself I will by the next one, so it's great to see some ideas of how to get it done. Be sure to keep us posted on the results!

No problem!

I think it was less than $40 total in materials. If you have any questions about how I put it together, feel free to ask!

LOL...from a smart-alek, I appreciate this question on so many levels. But, I, too, would love to know.

Maybe a quick "materials" write-up?

Same weather here and some of my veggies are getting sun damage(with maybe too much ozone mixed in). Thank you for the ideas on setup.
