Based on Mission Support’s request, today the red onions (planted in 2022) have been all harvested. The chives have been partially harvested (about one-third). The blue tub of microgreen salads has been completely harvested and replanted by using two different kinds of seeds in half of the container (Miners lettuce and Mustard Spinach). More soil from a bag in the GreenHab has been added together with a scoop of Plan Food (Miracle Gro) to fertilize. See pictures of the current replant.
