it's a bit hard to discern but this is a picture of the neighbours shade house that they use to grow magnificent tomatoes. Just as some background info my climate here is Mediterranean with cool wet winters and very hot, dry summers. Usually in summer it is not unusual to get a week where the temperature is well above 37 degrees Celsius (98 F). Often there are weeks during February where the temperature is above 40 degrees Celsius (104 F) every day for a week. Then the next week brings a cool change where it doesn't get above 35 degrees celsius. Nonetheless it is possible with good irrigation to grow stuff quite well down here.
