Toland Garden Rain Gauge


We know Summer is almost over, but we've seen quite a few people visit Weather Snob looking for this Toland Rain Gauge. We have to admit, it's easily the best looking rain gauge we've seen and think this will be perfect for our garden next Spring.

Oregon Scientific RGR126 Cable Free Long Range Rain Gauge

Checking the plastic rain gauge oftentimes means a trip out to the garden, in the rain, and then a lot of record keeping. A great way to stay abreast of the garden's irrigation needs without getting wet, Oregon Scientific's wireless, remote rain gauge features a self-emptying rain cup that measures and then dumps collected rainfall. Nine-day memory and indoor/outdoor temperature readings help monitor precipitation and weather patterns over time. An automatic a wireless transmission range of up to 300 feet with the rain gauge and up to 100 feet for the thermometer means a lot less back-and-forth. The unit displays daily readings, 9-day histories, and total rainfall records. Rainfall measurements are shown in inches or millimeters. The gauge also features a high rainfall alarm, comes with two AA batteries for the gauge and two AAA batteries for the sensor.

Old School 5" Glass Rain Gauge

Let's kick rain measurement old school with a 5" glass rain gauge. I used to see these babies around the farms growing up as a kid in Maine. Never knew how much they cost - $2.49? For that price we might be a dozen and see what's going on all over our yard.

Wireless Rain Center for Gardeners

Wireless Rain Center

We've never thought about how interesting a rain gauge would be for gardening instead of just knowing how much rain falls, but it really would be interesting. We have several spots in our yard where I'm always wondering how much rain the area gets, and how much I need to water.

It’s not always the norm but sometimes technology and nature can play nice together. For the green thumb who spends just as much time reading gadget blogs as they do gardening comes this wireless rain center. It will keep track of the daily and total rainfall levels in your garden and send that info back to an indoor receiver where it’s displayed on a large, easy to read LCD.
