  • 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.
