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!
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.
