Shady Beans

Setting out veggie starts late in the season means that during the rooting process, they are subject to the high heat of the summer sun.  After setting out some bean starts this week, I attached a piece of shade cloth to the support poles to provide shade for the plants.  I plan  to expose the plants to the sun for a few hours each day starting next week.

I've set out veggie starts before to find them wilting by 4 pm.  So far the plants have flourished and not one case of wilting leaves.
