For Christmas I received a wireless weather centre from Ste. I love it.
There is an outside section which is attached to a high point in between my vegetable plot and the greenhouse, which is the section of land I want to know most about.
The coldest it’s been outside is -2.6C and the warmest is 16.8C on Boxing Day! It was super mild though, I remember having to disrobe when doing the jobs.
It tells me what the dew point is, which I remember reading about once in how it related to veg and growing – I’ve since forgotten so will research it again.
I can set an alert on it to warn me if the temperature drops below a certain amount, meaning I will have to cloche/fleece the seedlings when I get them in the ground.
Inside the kitchen the temperature has ranged from 19.3 to 26.1 which is when I’ve been having a good cooking session. The Aga is always on so that room is always warm. Heart of the house :).
I can find out all about relative and Absolute pressure – no idea about this one?!
Wind gusts last night were recorded but only at 30mph which I was shocked about as it woke me up 3 times and was SO loud.
Also we’ve had 16ml of rain since I switched it on back in December.
I do love things like this and will happily sit looking at the data for a good hour or so, probably terribly sad, but that’s me :D.
I also got a tiller for Christmas – aren’t I a very lucky girl!?
