vegetable growing under shade cloth
Hi! I'm growing my first vegetable garden using the Square Foot method. As our temps have already been in the 90's, I'm considering growing under shade cloth. I currently have beets, summer squash, green onions, cherry tomatoes and plum tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans, bell & banana peppers. My black seed lettuce and swiss chard are suffering - going bitter. I'm unsure whether to cover my whole garden with 40% shade cloth or whether to just cover the lettuces. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
