Sorry no but the data on the internet based on research was only as new as about 2009 seems the law averages is time based 


purchased a data logger for 30 bucks no display bad news the reader is 50 bucks but you only need one reader for any number of loggers the loggers have a 3 year battery life.


Wanted to see how this winter to spring is ramps up in my area the data is captured electronically rather then having to remember to take 4 readings every day let the logger do it  Very Happy 


Plus with my Mason bee project want to see how this winter to spring emergence goes had to add sugar to the emergence box because they are ready to come out and pollinate even though not above 32 in my area.

I'm monitoring temp's in my MM, back & forth 35-40 and 40-35 again..
I planted 5 lbs of onions today, I had to poke a tube down to get them planted....soft but still frozen.
I was going to wait till MM reached 55 degrees F, however I'll take 45 now...

Much improved on May 2nd at 46 degrees  Very Happy  Really hope mother nature is going to let us plant soon .

Back in March my thermometer read 45 deg F.
Buried 4 inches deep into the M.M. it sure hasn't  elevated itself very much as of today 53/14.
Reading 50 deg F my plants sure aren't enjoying life as they should, all cool weather items.
In my cold frame, plants are a little happier. This may not be a good season for me anyway.
Probably go into the upper 80s and 90s within a day or 2.
