Functionality: The heater in the green hab is working well. Today was a very sunny and windy day ! As I was in EVA, Louis checked the temperature in the GreenHab this morning. It was around 30 Celsius degrees around 10:00 AM while the temperature in the tunnel was around 8.2 Celsius degrees. He switched on the cooler. The GreenHab temperature was 15 Celsius degrees at 6:00PM while it was 3.2 Celsius degrees in the tunnel. Louis watered the seedlings this morning and I did this afternoon.

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. The new lettuces I planted are growing very well too.

The Vegidair has been installed 5 days ago and is functionning very well. We were able to see nice sprouts of lettuce today in the Vegidair and some smaller in the similar pots I put in the GreenHab.
