Narrative: Today was the first official sol as greenhab officer. Right after the training, which got over around 17:30, I went to the hab with Clare, our crew journalist who helped me water the plants and briefed about the crops and activities from the previous crew as she took part in the previous expedition. As soon as we got inside the heater turned on. All the plants looked good except for the cucumbers, the leaves were drying out. Therefore I’m aiming to water them a bit more ( 1 gallon) than the previous crew did daily. I also found one of the big blue containers with no growing seed so I would like to plant some new crops. Many tomatoes were ripening and were red, almost on the last stage so after one or two days they shall be ready for harvest.

Harvest: None
Support/supplies needed: Seeds : zucchini , cauliflower, cabbage
