icon Day 38: October 16, 1998

Another bean plant has sprouted directly from the aggregate soil provided. 2 mil mylar has been hung from the ceiling on one end of the growth area which is now 3’x 4’ or 12 sq. ft. Visually, mylar seems to dramatically improve the light around the side it has been hung on. It should be interesting to see how the plants see it. Currently, all the plants are leaning significantly towards the middle as that is where the light is. We still have plenty of flowers on the beans, but no beans. The tomatoes planted 22” to 26” from the light are taking nicely. The tomatoes planted at a further distance than 26” have shown little or no growth.
