We have a small space of roughly 2m x 2m aside our garden shed that’s served no purpose in the past 3 years. With spring kicking in, I might as well start using it to grow some vegetables and join in on the edible garden life.
Because we tend to forget small details such as watering the plants, which is said to be crucial for them to actually grow, I thought I might as well geek things up a bit and automate the watering.
At the back of the shed, there’s a large water container that’s filled with the water coming from the shed’s roof. To get it to the plants, I’ll be using a simple water pump. Pipes and valves will get the water to those needy plants when required. A Raspberry Pi 2 and an Arduino Uno will do the measuring and controlling of the irrigation system.
