Narrative: This morning it was our HSO who went to water plants as I was on an EVA.

It was already pretty hot in there; he then warned me about it.

I went to check on everything in the afternoon and I confirm that it was really hot. I saw that some plants, particularly tomatoes needed water (considering their dirt was quite dry).

I watered well plants and crops, this explains why there is more water used than usual.

I opened the door briefly for the temperature to drop down from 97°F to 86°F.

Apart from that, plants are looking good, the cucumber plant still amazes me.

And finally, I waited for the end of this narrative to talk about the fish because they are doing well.

These are good news, and a glimpse of hope for the end of this mission!

Harvest: N/A

Support/supplies needed: Even though the fish are doing well in their new habitat, I keep my proposition for Donald to retrieve them because it is not ideal to keep them in a small bucket.
