Growing Broccoli

I tried seeding broccoli in mini pots for a fall crop, and apparently too much sun scorched the seedlings even though they were well watered. How much daily sun exposure should they get during 90 degree F temperatures? I am at home most days, so I can move them around.

I sowed mine yesterday indoors under grow lights and will plant in the flower beds after they get bigger and acclimate them to the heat. I saved seeds from broccoli plants I had in the bed last fall that I let go to seed. I would give yours morning sun and afternoon shade until temps get a lottle cooler.
