Avoid cool season crops such as broccoli, spinach, lettuce and carrots. If the sun is still too intense, consider buying some shade cloth to place over the plants or erecting a shade barrier such as a cloth to provide afternoon shade. Tucson is hot, but be planting early and shading in the afternoon, you should be able to get some vegetables!
