I was recently introduced to a piece of technology that while it is not new could stand to revolutionize the way things are done here on the homestead.
Enter the arduino.
My ideas for this little helper will take a lot of guessing out of the business of growing by allowing for nearly autonomous data collection about the environment on the homestead. Down the road it will be able to take on chores that consume lots of time now.
Look for this little gem to do big things in the future.
