I ended up wrapping my pots in reed privacy fencing -- looks kind of natural and fits in with the more tropical theme of my yard. It dropped the daily high temperature of the soil in my pots about 15-20 degrees F on sunny days -- with a high around 80. I'm getting a bit more fruit set, but still lots of blossom drop. I hung a little outdoor thermometer from one of the tomato cages and it is registering mid 80's in the shade during the warmest part of the day and low 60's at night. I would have thought that range would be OK for fruit set. So ??
