Protecting winter vegetables from the sun

If you have grown winter vegetables in South Africa, or anywhere that temperatures can get high in winter, then you will know that sometimes your veggies need protection from the harsh sun, especially when they are young. Protecting winter vegetables from the sun is a proactive approach to control exposure. 

When winter vegetables are exposed to harsh and hot sun they run the risk getting burnt and fading away, especially when they are young. If they are more established, then you run the risk of them bolting and going to seed, which will ruin your entire harvest. It’s safer to plan and have your simple shade cover ready for if or when a rogue hot day come around.
