Changes to crops: Pumpkin plants are flowering nicely. There are a number of soil-filled pots on the bottom level of the central shelf. They are labeled as bell peppers but in one week of monitoring I’ve seen no sprouting. I don’t think there are any plants in these pots.

Narrative: Watered the plants this morning at 9:43am. Today was a little colder so we kept the GreenHab toasty this morning and opened the door for a few hours around lunch. We had omelettes for breakfast so harvested some lovely spinach and rocket to get some greenery! Our mungbeans and blue corn have yet to sprout but will continue to monitor.

Harvest: 9g Chard Spinach, 3g Spinach Lakeside, 6g Rocket
