Narrative: At 0940 hours, the door to the GreenHab was opened to allow ambient airflow and was closed at 1600 hours. The sugar snap peas are continuing to improve and the yellow coloration present in the tomatoes continues to decrease. 2.5 g of sage was harvested for lunch. The blue tank will be filled tomorrow for the new crew’s use. The red romaine lettuce samples do not have red coloration which may be a sign of continued stress and should be monitored.

Thank you for the support and best of luck to the new crew.

Harvest: 2.5 g sage

Support/supplies needed: More fly paper.
