Cabana

By Laurena Mayne Davis

Oh, Cabana Boy ...

 

Tourists aren't the only ones who like to make for the shade in sunny
western Colorado. Some plants perk up with a little shelter, too.

Faced with the prospect of another season of burnt peppers and wilted
eggplants, earlier this summer I asked my husband to assemble some
kind of shade for newly transplanted peppers and eggplants as we were
headed out for a weekend away. He hastily assembled a "cabana" of
leftover plywood, survey stakes and wire. The results were not
elegant, but were highly successful. I have big, plump peppers and
oodles of eggplants.

Next year I think I'll expand our efforts and experiment with shade
netting over even more of the garden.
