Narrative: Our crew spent the day at Salt Creek, a few miles away from the station. Before we left, we watered the crops and left the GreenHab door open but the interior temperature still reached 43 C while we were gone. Since outdoor temperatures are likely to increase until the fall, we’ll probably have to run the fan in addition to propping the door open from here on out. I’ll program the fan to operate during the hottest parts of the day and report the schedule tomorrow. There are discrepancies among the thermometers in the GreenHab and a couple of them have problems with their digital displays. They should be replaced.

Harvest: None
