I’ve put the Ladybug Shield together with other hardware and software to implement a kitchen farmer plant food adjuster. For now I am calling this the “Ladybug Plant Food Adjuster.” I am currently testing/using it in my home.
The home farmer will be growing lettuce, herbs, tomatoes… within their home, likely the kitchen. This is in contrast to the more expert hobby or professional that has “industrial capable” pH, EC – and other probes, honking LEDs,…i.e.: knows A LOT about growing vegetables and herbs and needs super fine control of plant food adjustment…
…What The Ladybug Plant Food Adjuster Does
The Ladybug Plant Food Adjuster automatically adjusts the nutrient and pH level of a reservoir of water (the hydro part) feeding growing plants. It is for people like me that enjoy fresh vegetables and herbs. We have many reasons to supplement what we buy with what we grow in our kitchen. While I garden both indoors and out, I live in an environment that does not support growing vegetables and herbs year round. Besides, in the winter it is rainy and cold. During the winter I don’t want to spend time in an outdoor garden but love being surrounded by healthy growing plants in my kitchen.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
