Narrative
We had snow today so the greenhab stayed relatively cool with a high of 20 C, the same temperature that the heater shuts off at. With a limited water supply, the cool temperatures were welcome as I was able to use 1/3 of the water that I normally do on the plants. No signs of the seeds sprouting but I wouldn’t expect it at this point anyway. Tomorrow I’ll transplant more tomatoes and select plants to use as the control and test subject of the Moringa fertilizer experiment. Because the duration of this experiment continues into the next crew, I’d like to set the time for reapplication around a week after the next crew arrives so they have time to get settled and comfortable.
