If it is real hot should I cover my vegetables somehow?

    Heat can be detrimental to a vegetable garden slowing or simply killing whatever you are trying to grow. Some vegetables, however will thrive in the heat, as the first attached site mentions: “southern pea, okra, sweet potato, amaranth, malabar spinach, and watermelon.”

    Covering the vegetables isn’t necessary, the strategies most often utilized include watering more often because of the faster consumption of water by the plants (do not overwater, maybe an inch a week), avoid pruning and fertilizing, and water early in the day to avoid the growth of fungus.

    Also, be sure to check for damage from caterpillars, because the extreme heat is prime time for them to start munching on your plants.
