I have a wireless temp in my greenhouse, but it never occurred to me to bury one. Great idea!

Actually, I have a wireless temp sensor on the north, south, east and west sides of my house.

And, in the greenhouse.

Now, I will bury one. But where?

Near a plant you want to keep tabs on over the winter?

Or in the veggie garden, or the beds where I plant all our Alocasias. Smiling

Even better, vacuum seal it before burying it! I tip my hat to you.

What a great idea! Thanks!

Ambitious compost-makers could bury one in their current pile and really know what's going on under the hood.

Thank you for all your kind comments and acorns.
