Narrative: I removed the cardboard that I covered the peas with yesterday, as I noticed it was introducing a tiny amount of mold into the soil. I removed it immediately, will observe tomorrow as well. Two of the cucumber plants have yellowing leaves and one has a stalk that does not look particularly healthy. There are also three tomato plants that are drooping more than I would like. I just heard back from an ecology expert, and I will attempt to let the soil on both dry out and see if that improves the plants.
Harvest: No harvest today.
Support/supplies needed: None.
