Changes to crops:
-The snow peas are starting to show signs of water stress. The bottom leaves are turning yellow. I have not been excessively watering them but have been watering them twice a day. Today I decided to skip watering as their soil was still wet from last night.
-The beans in the blue planter and the 2 single pots on the shelf are doing very well. One of the beans in the single pots I planted has started to germinate and I can see it about to push out of the soil.
-The planter by the water tank is growing very well. I have not harvested from this planter and they are going to be very lush when the other crew gets here. They will likely need to be harvested within the first few days of their mission.
-The planter to the right of the shelves has some parts that survived the harvest and the seeds I spread around have begun to germinate. Would you like me to try and remove the stems left over from harvest or let the new seeds just grow around them?
-On the wooden pallet, the single planter of dill is growing very well. Like above, it will be ready for the next crew for the beginning of their mission.
