Open source folks are naturally lazy. Anything mundane task they can automate, they will. So what does an open source developer do when faced with planning, planting, and tediously watering a garden? Automate!
Lazy hackers will appreciate the Garduino, an open hardware Arduino to automatically water your garden and tweet at you when your plants are thirsty. Want a frost alert on your android phone so you know to cover your precious tomato starts? How about a tool that tells you when to start seeds, when plants will be harvested, and whether you’re going to have too much lettuce in July? (Automatic seed planter not included.) Or what about a cairo-based garden plotter to let you know you don’t have space for said seedlings?
Come discover open source tools for all types of garden hackers.
