Narrative: Received instructions from Dr. Rupert. Made adjustments above, removed the 60% sunshade, new photos are attached. Some carrots have sprouted in one deep bin, and a single cucumber occupies the second.


The 4th tan planter is Peas.
The red cabbage was planted as greens

Harvest: None

Support/supplies needed:

1. Requesting additional herb seeds to finish the last row of the large blue tub.

2. Would it be appropriate to move the tan planter with the peas to the pallet, to afford for the taller growth? Or to transplant into black planters? Or are they fine if I just move them to the upper shelf?
