Cool tomatoes and other vegetable plants with this easy to put up/easy to take down shade canopy using 30% or 40% shade cloth. It cuts down the heat but lets the plants grow. You’ll only need it for a few months in the summer, so a quick and temporary structure makes a lot of sense. It works well and holds up on ordinary windy days.

I think this is the best, most versatile way of making a shade framework out of all the videos I've seen on YouTube. But, my question is this: do you glue the pipes in place or just assemble them without gluing?
Nice cideo. Nice lady!!
Oh, very helpful. I'm always looking for tricks that an older woman (me) can do myself. This is doable!
Hey there! Looking great. I'm a Peace Corps Volunteer serving in West Africa as an Agriculture volunteer. Our Hot season is coming up! I'm looking at developing a shade structure, and cost is a huge factor with the people I work with.
I'm thinking about doing a shade structure with old mosquito nets — any thoughts? A lot of shade structures I've seen use fancy materials which aren't even close to available here. But I'm thinking that the mosquito net would give enough dappled shade.
Thanks for any insights!
Great info, thanks!
Great idea. Nice to see a video with "productive" comments.
would you put the shade cloth over zucchini/squash too?
I think we're gonna try this. Good idea!

Thank you so much for your tutorial. I'm going to do this this year for sure.
Great idea! I'm doing container gardening and I think that besides being a sun screen, it will help keep birds out of my tomatoes! Thank you. – Mary in Texas

No adhesive at all? They fit tightly enough to stay together just like that?
I Love it! Personally I would have cover it all on the sides too. That way I don't have to deal with those butterflies / moth that lay down those who caterpillars. 🙂
