Narrative: This morning I was the habcom for today’s EVA, so I was not able to go in the GreenHab, but our crew scientist went to perform daily activities.

She watered and maintained crops and plants in the morning, and I went to check on it in the afternoon.

Our environmental sensors have been deployed, I was then able to double-check the humidity and indeed the old sensor underestimate the real value. I will now use the value given by our environmental sensors.

As advised, I unplugged the supplemental light, and I will watch if it doesn’t bother the plants.

Besides that, everything grows fast and well!
