Changes to crops: More ripe tomatoes


Today I woke up early and went to the GreenHab and noticed the crops seemed healthy within the moist pots. Heater was on and I spent some time there. Went again two more times around afternoon to mist the crops after my EVA because around that time a significant amount of humidity drops down and the temperature rises to 96-99.5 F. In the evening all the crops were watered evenly. Subsequently I examined my experiment for measuring the rate of evapotranspiration in the GreenHab and the science dorm and found out that the experiment is flourishing. Another experiment with the pots to see the effects of temperature on crops in different pots was also achieving good results. We had a harvest after dinner for a juicy salad and called it a sol J.
