I pulled down the shade cloth on the south side of the greenhouses this morning in order to get some more direct light to the plants. They've all been doing well with the filtered light, but I wondered if they wouldn't enjoy a bit more morning light. It gets up into the low 90s during the afternoon, and the light is quite intense during that time. Already lost one leaf to sunburn (it was crispy). So, I pull the shade down in the morning when I open up the dutch doors at the end of the greenhouses. Then I pull the shade cloth back up at about noon; just before I leave the garden for the day.
