Organic or not, little sun means little harvest period. Forest edges yes they do this in the jungels and have been doing it a lot longer than we have been here plowing fields.

Actually, kyfarmer, the sun is so brilliantly bright up here in Montana in July and August that much of the garden will die without row covers to difuse the sunlight.

Plus, this far north it's light out from about 4:30 AM to about 10:30 PM on our property in the summer. All those hours of extremelty dry (around 10% humidity) sunlight and wind pretty much sucks the life out of plants, even with thick mulch. Tomatoes sunburn and are bleached on one side. Leaves of plants burn white.

Live and learn ... I had no clue.

Thanks for sharing.
