I stumped across this website and Im glad I did. I will be implementing many of his projects hopefully soon. He builds plant automation stuff that is computer controlled. And since Im a programmer, hopefully I can get to his level one of these days :) I've been looking for a good starting point and I believe this is it.
His site is also offering a giveaway, so visit: http://www.cheapvegetablegardener.com/2010/06/garden-safe-gift-pack-giveaway.html to enter.
