Hello, all. I am growing my tomatoes, which are to be lined up along this fence for support. Full sun will be available in this area by the end of May/June, but until then, this shade line will be here from the fence.

Is it ok for me to go ahead and move these without concern for growth, production, and flowering, or would there be substantial advantage to leaving these tomatoes in the sun and move them later? Opinions are really needed lol. I have always had full sun in the past.

zone: 8a
Facing: South end of yard

I have grown tomatoes in part shade before but they were a mini type and they did well. That being said, tomatoes need light and heat so I'd be a little leery about letting larger varieties grow in full shade for such a long time.
