|Reflected heat will damage nearly any vegetable plant you put in the garden so the solution is probably to provide a little afternoon shade by placing a sun block fabric, or even woven polyester weed block fabric on the sunny side of the garden. You can simply drive a few stakes into the ground and attach the fabric to the stakes. Should be placed so it blocks the late afternoon sunshine. Hope this helps!
