Reuse Sheer Curtains for Garden Shade

This is such a great and simple way to shade those garden plants from harsh summer sun. In Florida and many southern states summer sun gets a little too intense on plants. Create a simple frame or some way to support fishing line or some type of string then use old sheer drapery panels (cheap at garage sales) and place panels over top and secure to the string or line with clothespins. Rain filters through and sunlight but plants are protected too!

Great idea Janet. Very frugal as well. It gets very hot here in Oz in the Summer months, also frosty now that it is winter. Thanks for the idea.

They would also be good to do something similar on a porch. Just sew them up with fishing line, top and bottom, to make a simple shade so it isn't so bad with the sun angles.
