Changes to crops:

Harvested 69 g of mixed salad greens

Narrative:
Decided on format for outreach experiment, planted the sunflower seeds
and alfalfa. Last day with the full crew, so we are having a fresh
salad!

Harvest:
69g mixed salad greens

Support/Supplies Needed:
One of the raised beds of mixed salad greens is having some wilting,
while the one I harvested is thriving. I’ve been watering both the
same, but it seemed to be showing signs of this for the past week.
I also need a more accurate way to take the height of the water level.
It is hard for me (and even another crew member) to tell the level
just from tapping it. A level sensor or a pressure sensor would be a
good addition to the Greenhouse.
