Shading for Fall Garden?
I have a small garden plot (approximately 20'x16') and am thinking about building a DIY shade canopy system for July/August transplants and seedlings. Combined with a new drip tape irrigation system I'm going to install I think my plants would be helped getting established this summer.
Would this be beneficial to me or a waste of time/resources? I was going to use PVC pipe for the frame and 30% shade cloth on top for the shading. It would be simple to take down after the worst of August is over and could be used year to year. Was thinking it would also give me a little extra production from my spring crops next July?
