Narrative: As our simulation concludes today, I find myself already missing the vibrant and beloved greens from the GreenHab. Our Tereza is blooming. I affectionately named our tomato that way. And here is another beautiful cucumber called Holly. She is so calm and growing well in her big blue tank. Upon entering the GreenHab, they greet me with a cheerful "Hello, Cutie," eagerly anticipating the arrival of the next heartwarming GreenHab officer. Middle of the endless desert and mountains, they thrive alongside the Utah winter.

Over the 12-day period, we utilized approximately 86.5 liters of water. Our total harvest comprised 375 grams of microgreens, featuring varieties such as radish, kale, red cabbage, sunflower, and beans. The microgreens salad offered a delightful natural taste.

As part of our conservation efforts, we saved and rested the soil for the next crew.

Currently, the GreenHab is flourishing with a variety of crops, including kale, cress, arugula, parsley, dill, cucumber, carrot, mint, red cabbage, radish, broccoli, pea, sunflower, oregano, basil, sage, thyme, cilantro, chives, lettuce, lavender, rosemary, corn salad, Dutch lambs, and more. The newly planted microgreens are thriving and showing robust growth.
