thanks SC. Hoping for info from those in the heatwave area. Dirt doctor just sent a reply through his manager, " When the midday sun no longer burns plants."
I just sent him a message should I wait to the 82's or 70's. Im not sure what the burning temp is for tomatoes, cucumber , and peppers.

Hi Austin,

You should be able to remove all shade cloth at this point.
Some of my garden is a bit more shaded than yours, but I haven't used any shade cloth since last month.

Temporarily, you might want to "roll it back" part way, so the plants have time to acclimate to the full sun before you take it completely off.
Good luck!

Yes, what Gloria said.  As a zone 9 gardner, from CA, generally anything lower than the low/mid 90’s and things get uncovered.  I also factor in night temps.  Our nights are getting into the 50’s, so the amount of time you might have the higher temps during the day is also shortened.  Pull it back to allow for acclimation, if you’re still getting to the mid 90’s, otherwise I would remove it and allow for the sun to ripen up the fruits as summer ends and fall plantings begin.
