Hours of supplemental light: from 6pm to 11pm

Changes to crops: one cucumber that was not ripes fell down while changing the shade

Daily water usage for crops: 13 gallons

Time(s) of watering for crops: 10:30apm and 7:30pm

Aquaponics: None

Narrative: Today, the greenhab had many visitors. We installed the new shades (80% shading) and it was a hassle, it took us a lot of time and was very complicated! Almost all the crew participated in this installation. The commanders and the astronomer helped a lot and without them I would not have been able to do it! Thanks to this installation I noticed that many tomatoes plants were bending and with Benoit we used many wooden sticks. We changed the organisation of the GreenHab quite a lot. I still have many work to do to rearrange all this but, at least, the new cover is partially installed!

Support/supplies needed: Wooden sticks (again please)
