A record of a series of iterative experiments to grow crops

TRIAL 21:

ADJUSTMENT: No moisture

RESULTS: All crops died

NOTES: Plants seem to need moisture. Denying it caused withering and rapid crop death.

TRIAL 22:

ADJUSTMENT: Water alternative

RESULTS: Crops initially thrived, eventually died

NOTES: Animal urine employed as water alternative. Animals seemed to resent being held in place until urination occurred. Cats were especially difficult. Badilia vocally resented having to restrain animals and being splashed with urine. Had to pay bonus.

TRIAL 23:

ADJUSTMENT: Add rocks

RESULTS: Crops failed to grow at all

NOTES: Badilia said that rocks around plants help hold in moisture. Planted seeds and placed rocks on top. No crop growth noted at all. Suspect Badilia of ill intent.

TRIAL 24:

ADJUSTMENT: Add rocks, Part II

RESULTS: Crops thrived

NOTES: Badilia explained that rocks are applied after crops have sprouted. Eye rolling and sighing was excessive. Waited until crops broke through the ground, then placed rocks around stems. Success was noted. Badilia called it "keeping their feet wet"; confusing, as plants do not have feet.

TRIAL 25:

ADJUSTMENT: Constant moisture

RESULTS: Test not yet complete

NOTES: If some moisture is good for plants, then more must be better. Have flooded fields and am keeping plants constantly wet. Eye rolling detected from Badilia, but trial continues.
