The Q&A Archives: Shade Film

Question: With the heat and sun of the central valley would a shade film help protect peppers and other vegetables and if so what kind of film to use or build? Thank you

Answer: Shade screen or shade cloth set on an angle to diffuse late afternoon sunshine can help your plants perform well. It is normally sold by the foot and you can make a simple frame out of 1 x 2's to set in your garden. Look in the patio section or screen door section. Best wishes with your garden!
