Ever since seeing The Martian (and reading the book, for that matter, but the movie was more recent), I can no longer hear “vegetables in space”* without thinking of potatoes. No spoilers, but let’s hope our friend Hidoshi here has some alternative methods of growing stuff at his disposal.

Darvin mentioned Hidoshi back in Chapter Seven, for those who like to keep track of such things.

*(In other semi-recent veggies-in-space news, the astronauts on the ISS have achieved lettuce.)
