Today was the day for my experiment pots to come out from the growth tent because they seemed all sprouted out. All the four pots were placed in four different spots (Pot 1 : Hab, Pot 2: Green Hab, Pot 3: lower deck of Hab, Pot 4: Science dorm). I will be watering them daily and checking temperatures for all the pots and the progress for their growth. There is not much time left to obtain a good amount of data but I would be really grateful and happy if the next GreenHab officer will continue this experiment.

The crops were watered in the morning and in the evening as well because some of the crops on the small table looked withered. I am planning to put a shade in the GreenHab if that is possible as the sunlight seemed harsh during the afternoon at some point in the GreenHab. My pan experiment is going well in both the science dorm (growth tent) and the GreenHab. We had a harvest of a few herbs and greens for dinner. We are going to make nice pizza.
