Changes to crops: I removed the tomatoes and prepared the soil for the
next seeds.
I harvested carrots.
Radishes are germinating.
Red lettuces have some problem growing up, and are still not red.

The monitoring of the fan that I made yesterday worked well today, and
helped control the heat, even if it is still really hot when the sun
shines. Maybe, in the next weeks, I will put on the cooling system.
Indeed, it appeared that for a moment the temperature increased even
with a fan at max speed.

I also discovered that the "Crew 205 ‘s mystery seeds" were… radishes
! So I pulled out some radishes from this planter to allow the biggest
ones to grow.

Radishes from my experiment have a great germination : more than 75% of
the planted seeds have germinated, with an average of 2.6 cm of height.

Harvest: 9.0 g of basil, 2.1 g of parsley, 31.4 g of radish, 2.3 g of
lemon basil

Support/supplies needed: None.
