Narrative: Crew 210 arrived on site this afternoon. The crops look alright for the most part, save for some wilting and stunted growth. The tomato seeds were sprouted in large pots with loose soil, which may explain their inability to continue growth past sprouting cotyledons. Energy stores within the seed will support initial growth, but with large-particle-sized substrate and large pots, the short roots have trouble reaching anything of value, even when the substrate still looks properly watered.

The herb beds and crops that are further along in their growth cycles look healthy. Temperatures are very comfortable here but that means it’ll likely be too hot in the GreenHab during the day. I’ll make sure to leave the door propped open and water the crops before our crew heads out to Salt Creek.

Harvest: None
