Shade cloth we used: Making your own garden shade cover is one of the best ways to extend your summer crop.

Shade cloth can really help lower hot summer temperatures and block some of the overpowering direct heat and light that we in Texas experience from Late May into early September. A shade cover will extend your spring and summer garden and allow you to plant your fall garden earlier. Both of these help you produce more from your garden. An added benefit it the shade cloth also provides a shaded area for weeding, planting, and harvesting.
