Changes to crops: I transplanted the cucumber in -to 4 separated pots. I also transplanted the radish into 6 different pots for the experiment Music For Plants.

Narrative: This morning, Marion LEBRUN took care of the GreenHab, as I were on an EVA. She watered all the plants as usual. For lunch, I harvested Sage, Oregano and Basil to make some pizzas. This afternoon, with Blandine GORCE, we transplanted the fours plants of cucumbers which were together into 4 separated pots. We notices that two of them have fruits. We hope that we’ll be able to eat fresh cucumbers after the end of our mission. The experiment Music For Plants dried in the GreenHab. I had to find another solution. I decided to carry out the experiment with Radish. I transplanted some from the big blue tank into sported pots. I
hope they’ll survive from the change.

Harvest: 2g Basil / 2g Sage / 4g Oregano
