I have a mister on my patio and I"ll try it tomorrow. I also have the pot sitting in water. Thank you for your suggestion.Gary350 wrote:My parents live in Tempe. In Arizona they sell those water mister sprayers people put them on the patio to keep it cool. My parents use those sprayers on the tomatoes. They also water with the garden hose every evening.
Thanks for the advice. I do have afternoon shade on my patio, so hopefully I can cool the plant off, before I lose too many more green tomatoes.rainbowgardener wrote:Also, the full sun label is meant for us who don't live in the desert. For you, try putting it somewhere where it doesn't get the heat of the late afternoon sun. Also try putting shade cloth (row cover) over them to diffuse the sun a little. Then you can mist the shade cloth and create some evaporative cooling.
