Functionality: The heater in the green hab is working well. Today was a very rainy and cloudy day ! I checked the temperature in the GreenHab this morning. It was around 21 Celsius degrees around 10:40 AM while the temperature in the tunnel was around 8.4 Celsius degrees. I did not switch on the cooler. The GreenHab temperature was 18 Celsius degrees at 5:00PM while it was 8.2 Celsius degrees in the tunnel. I watered the seedlings this morning and this afternoon too.

Status: The existing seedlings in the greenhab are continuing to grow well. There are spinach, lettuce, radish, and beans growing very well in the small pots.

The lettuces are growing well too and I think we will have one for tomorrow lunch.

The Vegidair has been installed 2 days ago and is functionning very well. We were able to see some sprouts of lettuce today in the Vegidair but not in the similar pots I put in the GreenHab.
