  2. It was I was really excited by this project because quite recently I have started developing a hobby in growing a vegetable garden. I have a pretty large vegetable garden put together but my next problem is going to be figuring out how to maintain soil moisture without spending too much time on watering the plants myself. This was really great research and implementation
