Gardening just got hi-tech! With new gadgets coming to the market every year, gardeners are spoiled with choices when it comes to the latest trends for their green hobby. Gardening can be a great way to disconnect from the technology that has taken over our lives. Making use of the many available garden technology apps and objects may seem in opposition to the notion of unplugging in the garden. But rather than taking us away from the natural world, these technologies are new gardening assistants making it easier for us to partner with nature.
The Internet of Things (IoT), a network of physical objects devices, vehicles, building, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity that enables these objects to collect and exchange data, has officially crept into backyards around the country. Unfortunately, some people just aren't born with a green thumb. If you're not inclined to gardening, but still want to grow your own produce at home without breaking a sweat, these futuristic home gardening inventions might be just what you need.
