Changes to crops: None

Narrative: The carrots appear to be dominating their portion of the planter and seem to be drawing nutrients from the adjacent oregano and parsley. Tuesday, we will harvest some of these carrots to help alleviate the stress on the rest of the grow bed and provide supplemental nutrition to the crew. The cucumber plants are dead and we will recover them and repurpose the soil for the incoming tomato plants at the beginning of sim tomorrow as well. We changed the fly paper in all of the pots and grow beds, and we took photos of all of the plants in the GreenHab to compare when we photograph them again several times throughout the sim.

Harvest: None

Support/supplies needed: I suggest purchasing packages of fly paper in the next few weeks, there is only one left.
