Narrative: Temperatures were high again today but the GreenHab stayed fairly cool. The fan was running on the highest setting from 11:00 until around 19:00. Crops are looking healthy but I think it’s been too hot for the flowering tomato plant. The fertilizer and lower temperatures from yesterday seemed to help but it’s still showing signs of stress. Harvested parsley and sage that was used in the crew’s lunch and dinner.

Harvest: 21 g parsley, 1 g sage
