Narrative: Yesterday, at 23:00 I noticed that the supplemental light wasn’t on, so I went to check on it and it seems like the timer was late. I then put the timer back on track.

When I entered the greenhab today, I was struck by how hot it was, indeed it was 96°F. Hopefully plants and crops were not too dry, but it was blatant they needed more water than usual.

To drop the temperature, I decided to attach the sunshade 50% on the right side and 30% on the left side. This way, the sun didn’t hit as much, and the temperature decreased.

After all of that, I maintained and watered crops and plants as my daily operations and got to harvest a whole lot of tomatoes!

Harvest: 305g of tomatoes

Support/supplies needed: N/A
