Time(s) of watering for crops: 8:57 & 15:36

Changes to crops: Re-planted carrot seeds where I harvested them, ie. In the blue tank on the far-left side of the GreenHab. Also planted radish seeds in the blue tank containing beans and cucumber.

Narrative: Maintained and watered crops and plants as my daily operations. There were some dry leaves on tomatoes located in the upper storage. Cleaned them and watered the tomatoes a little more than the rest.

Harvested carrots and thyme in the morning for lunch. Reseeded carrots and seeded radish.

Began by sealing the aquaponics to ensure no leak before turning it on. Fishes are doing well in their tank. More water was needed as I added the tank for the plants, but from now on no more water should be needed for the aquaponics. The pump is working, plants are in place, and water is circulating, to conclude, the aquaponics is now functional.

Harvest: 166g of carrots (without fanes, 364g if you count fanes which were used for this lunch’s soup) & 2g of thyme

Support/supplies needed: N/A
