Sol 9:
WE NOW HAVE 11 BABY TOMATOES!!! THEY ARE ADORABLE TEENY GREEN BUNDLES OF HAPPY! Today’s weather is better than usual and the reflector that I put on behind the tomatoes is working great for them. Too much sunlight was also hurting them, so they have been getting partial shade and partial sun! The best way to take care of plants is to treat them like princesses! I make sure to give them words of encouragement and happy sprinkles.
Eshaana also set up her camera for her mini farm! The tiny little kales look so cute! Her camera was acting a little weird, so she used Sara’s GoPro to help track the sunshade from sunrise to sunset! We are hoping to do a LiDAR scan for that and the greenhab! We can make some rearrangements in the greenhab with a CAD model to optimize water usage and space! The inventory sheet is also almost done!
Sol 9 Harvest:
Cilantro: 2 grams
Support/supplies needed: Provide all the happies for baby tomatoes! (^-^)
