2.1.3. Sensor Data Varification

2.2. There will be 4 of these

3. Data Storage

3.1. AllReadsRecorded

3.1.1. Truncate to restricted amount of memory discarding oldest values

3.1.2. I think I can get away with format float

3.2. ArrayOfThreeReads

3.2.1. Most Recent 3 VWC Reads

3.2.2. Most Recent 3 EC Reads

3.2.3. Most Recent 3 Temperature Reads
