Narrative: I walked into the GreenHab at approximately 11 am, and noticed that it was extremely hot due to it being a very warm day. I turned the fan on to cool it down. I harvested parsley at around 11:30 am. I returned around 5 pm to water the plants, turn off the fan, and harvested a lot of kale, some arugula, as well as some cilantro. Planning to check on the plants one more time this evening before going to bed.
Harvest: Kale: 103 grams, Parsely: 8 grams, Arugula: 8 grams, Cilantro: 7 grams. Total: 126 grams.
Support/supplies needed: Same cucumber plants and tomatoes not doing that well, continuing to discuss with ecology expert and observing (currently seeing if drying out soil is helping).
