Changes to crops: All plants still look healthy. More flowers are visible on the tomato plant of the GreenHab. Lettuces (old seed) produce flowers. Romaine lettuce still grow very well. We have harvested the 2 plants of Lettuce Red Leaf as they wouldn’t grow anymore.

Narrative: It was hotter today despite the fan was turned up to 3. Nevertheless I will do the same tomorrow. For our dinner we have harvested lettuce, parsley and basil (from the GreenHab) and tomatoes (from the plants we brought). I have sow bean and tomato seeds according to their respective treatments for my experiment.
