Due to the Indoor thermometer of the GreenHab seems to being uncalibrated, an observational experiment was performed during the day: the information of 5 different indoor thermometers were recollected every hour. Then, the average temperature of every hour was calculated. Tomorrow another run of the experiment will be performed.

Harvested: 5g Basil + 1g Sage
