Changes to crops: I planted lettuces in the pots where lettuces had been harvested yesterday. I transplanted zucchini plants that ware in common pots into two separated pots to allow them to grow better.
Narrative: This morning, I clarified tomatoes to give them more space. I also planted lettuces, as I harvested some yesterday. For lunch time, I harvested zucchini flower to make an Italian recipe and basil to make homemade fresh green pesto. This afternoon, we took care of spirulina with our commander. We refilled the left tank and fed algae them with nutrients. After this, I worked on my personal experiment : Music For Plants. I moisturized dry watercress seeds with Murashige and Skoog to plant them tomorrow. After watering the plants at the end of the afternoon, I harvested Zebra Mint to do some moroccan tea.
Harvest: 6g Zucchini Flower / 18g Basil / Spirulina / 8g Zebra Mint
