·         More new seedlings popped up in one of the herb gardens! Probably 20 in  that single planter now!

·         Planted more herb. One herb planter currently has two rows of the following herbs, from left to right (see picture attached to email):

·         Found the tin of seed packets.

o   Organized the non-empty seed packets alphabetically using cut up cardboard in that tin

o   Created an index of packets which still have seeds

o   Created an empty index of packets to preserve the individual plant care instructions.

·         The current monitor is a fire and carbon monoxide detector. Is there still a desire from mission control to install a separate carbon monoxide detector, perhaps in a different location in the greenhab? See attached pictures for picture of current alarm system.

·         Tested the fire and CO detector, system is nominal.
