Well in hot weathers such as Curacao, you can’t grow all vegetables in this sun without giving them shade.
Most plants can do well in this sun without needing shade. Here’s a list of most planted vegetables:
Tomatoes are plants that already need a lot of sun. So in hot weathers, they will do fine. Without any problems. But remember to give them enough water.
Peppers will also do fine in hot weathers. I’ve planted them outside without putting them in shade and they produced a lot! So that’s not a problem.
Most leaf vegetables, such as lettuce, need a cooler temperature. So for them, you do have to put them in shade.
A shade cloth (the black ones) are better for this hot weather. It gives 50% sun and 50% shade. So it’s just right for the leaf vegetables.
But there are some leaf vegetables that don’t require that much shade. Some of those are: pak choi, celery, amsoy, swiss chards, and more.
Well, for them, you’ll probable need something to cover them. The sun can heat it up. Though, I have a fish pond outside which gets full sun everyday. The first day the water did get hot, but when it cooled down, it didn’t really get hot anymore. But I still want to put some lilies in the pond to cover the water surface more.
But if the water is circulating all the time, you don’t have to. It will cool down when it circulates through the grow beds.
I hope I informed you enough about this topic. But if you still have any questions, feel free to ask me in a comment!
