Hello :)
So eventually the weather has turned and I have been able to put my cucumbers, tomatoes and baby pepper plants outside. I have hardened them off over a few days, but yesterday was the first day out all day in the sun. Now the leaves have turned white and a few are dying on all my plants. I think its from the sun. But I am stuck now as what to do? I am keeping them half day I shade and half day in sun now. But what do I do with the leaves? Prune, or leave them?

The following link gives advice on sun scorch to houseplants, but the same principals will apply to your plants as well.

Transplant shock. Make sure to water and give them a few days. Nearly everyone goes through this.
