Most things are having a hard time with the summer heat, but the corn is going great guns. I spaced the plants a little farther apart this time and offset them. Next time I am thinking of running a single row along the back of each bed as some of the ones at the back have not gown as fully as others, I am thinking its because they are being shaded slightly. We’ll see, its a work in progress.
So my weather station has been running for 21 days now on solar and batteries and other than a couple of glitches where it did not save any data its been running flawlessly. I have grabbed a copy of the data and ran it up in a spreadsheet and made a chart of the temperature data saved so far. Now this is by no means scientific accurate data, because the station itself is on the western side of my house, between two houses, but it is very representative of the micro climate of my vegetable garden, which due to being up against the house and the western aspect gets smashed in summer because of the heat and from what I can tell so far, tracks about 3 degrees C higher than the actual temperature. At the end of the month I will put up graphs for temp, humidity and barometric pressure as well as the raw data for the month.
