- 1790: July 2, 1790 – Two heavy showers at Guildford with thunder.
- 1789: July 2, 1789 – S. Lambeth Cherries sold in the streets, but very bad. Young fly-catchers come out at Selborne.
- 1785: July 2, 1785 – The heat at noon yeasterday was so great that it scorched the white cucumbers under the hand-glasses, & injured them much. Annuals die with the heat. Took away the moss from the white cucumbers, because it seemed to scald them.
- 1784: July 2, 1784 – Began to cut my meadow-grass; a good crop. Mr & Mrs Richardson left us. Low creeping mists. Yellow even.
- 1783: July 2, 1783 – The foliage on most trees this year is bad. Vast damage this day by lightening in many counties!! Great thunder-shower at Lymington, & in the New forest, & in Wilts, & Dorest, & at Birmingham, & Edinburg.
- 1782: July 2, 1782 – Cut my St foin, & sold it to John Carpenter. This is the 15th crop. It continues as good as it has been for some years.
- 1781: July 2, 1781 – Made my rick of meadow-hay, which contains six jobbs, without one drop of rain. Some part of it would have been better, I think, had there been some sun on the day of making.
- 1776: July 2, 1776 – The early brood of swallows are active & adroit, & able to procure their subsistence on the wing. Fresh broods come forth daily.
