Changes to Crops: planted some onion seeds and added fertilizer to the spinach and mint plants – hopefully they can start sprouting soon. Changed compost and extra soil pots to keep things organized.
Sol 9:
Today was a little warmer than the day before so I watered all the plants before our 12pm EVA. The humidity was low as usual, but the misting makes it warm and moist. The cucumber plants are doing better with the elevated stakes since they are getting more sunlight. I also checked on Eshaan’s mini solar farm and there are more baby kale sprouts! I’m glad to see her setup working!
I am little worried about the spinach and mint that I planted a few days ago. I added some organic fertilizer to both of those plants to give it more nutrients. The cling wrap is also still on there since the pots are closer to the edge near the higher sunlight concentration. I was able to properly harvest the kale and lettuce for our dinner plans that we have. I still have no idea what we are making lolz. The inventory list is almost done and I will put that in the greenhab soon.
Sol 9 Harvest:
Lettuce: 13 grams
Kale: 53 grams
Support/supplies needed: More potting soil please? Maybe like a tiny bag, doesn’t have to be too big!
