Sol 5:
Today was an interesting day lolz, especially with the EVA! I went into the greenhab a little earlier to quickly water the plants to get them ready for the higher temperatures later in the day. Eshaana tended to her cute little solar farm by adding cling wrap to the pot to retain moisture! Since she is growing kale and C4 grass, the soil moisture is a big deal! I then went to the Science Dome to take some water over for my hydroponics setup (2 Liters in each module). I already see some kale seeds cracking into baby leaves!! I did test the pH and water temps of the hydroponics modules as well (reported in my research paper).
After our LiDAR scanning EVA, I came back to the greenhab to add some cling wrap on the carrot plants. I noticed that the carrots are the only plants that are quickly losing water. Condensation should definitely help! I actually started sweating in the greenhouse which was new lolz! There is also some new baby lettuce leaves! Adriana made some potato gratin and a yummy sour cream/dill sauce to go with it! She also made some amazing enchiladasfor dinner and she used the cilantro that was harvested! Today was super fun!!
