Sol 7:
I took off the cling wrap from the carrot plants since they were growing fungus – but this is a good sign! The moisture retained! The stems of the plant got stronger, and I am hoping that the roots are now properly established. I left two more wraps on it to keep the water dripping in the soil. The cucumber plants are also becoming stronger and stronger everyday, so I tied more water to hold the taller vines. Today was also weirdly hot so I turned on the large fan to cool the plants down and make them stand up again! Eshaana also checked on her mini solar farm and now there are about 10 tiny little kales, and the C4 Bermuda grass has broken through the top layer of the soil. So many cute baby plants!
