Changes to crops: I planted 8 pots of radish, as part of my plant experiment. I put them in a shelf and moved some tomatoes plant to the other shelf.

Narrative: Yesterday night, the blue tank was refill so we have a full water tank for the greenhab.
In the morning I changed the yellow fly papers.

This afternoon, I started the installation of my plant experiment. I planted 8 pots of radish (Raphanus Sativus), following my protocol. I tried the UV lamp for the experiment, but it doesn’t work. We tried to fix it at the RAM, but it seems that the fact that the frequency used for electricity is deferent from Europe makes it impossible to work. Thus the base we have needs to be changed. I think our UV bulb works properly.

As yesterday, I opened the door from 1200 to 1700 to cool down the greenhab.
7.0g of basil and 1.1g of parsley were harvested for soup.

Harvest: 7.0 g basil and 1.1 g of parsley.

Support/supplies needed: A UV lamp, or a base for the UV bulb we have.
