Narrative: A morning water before our maintenance EVA today. I watered a few of the herbs again in the middle of the day per Crew 220’s instructions. When watering tonight I noticed quite a few plants were dry, so perhaps too hot in the GreenHab today. We might need to open the door tomorrow for a bit to keep the temperature even. We harvested some cilantro to have with our green curry for dinner tonight.

Harvest: 3g Cilantro

Support/supplies needed: N/A

Other Notes:

Aloe and succulents unchanged. Will water again tomorrow. The strawberry plant leaves are browning and rotting at the edges. From the information sent through in yesterday’s comms window, this may be an indication of black root rot or verticillium wilt. I think I will need to check the roots tomorrow for indication of black root rot. Am not sure how to proceed in rescuing these plants. Also noticed a number of small insects around the herbs, carrots and radishes. Should I spray with pesticide?
