Test

This is a test page for me, for my moisture sensors. So won’t make much sense at the moment.

Problems:

  • Moisture reading fluctuation with temperature
  • Morning high moisture content – due to condensation between plate and insulator?
  • Calibration of sensors

Setup:

  • 2M resistor here (Air~83 Wet~122 @20C (130 @50C), Soil~119 @ 25.5)
  • Probe covered with epoxy resin. Try to remove issues with moisture condensing between covering and blade

Sensor 93

Sensor 92




Outside

This sensor is shoved into the ground in my vegetable bed. It’s actually quite useful. Come spring I’ll know when the soil has warmed up enough to start planting my summer seeds. I also like the way the soil temperature lags behind the air temperature. Obvious, but interesting to watch!

 




My Umbrella Plant

This page is devoted to my Umbrella Plant. I don’t love my Umbrella Plant as much as my Basil. It has some flaws. It’s not edible and it doesn’t really grow fast. It also collects a lot of dust. It also appears to be able to tolerate large periods of drought as i’m not very good at watering it.
