While many gardeners are aflutter about the newest, shiniest echinacea or New Zealand rarity, I'm dreaming of going high tech this year. My All Geek Garden.
Instead of plants, I will have wires and wi-fi shrubs and cell towers. And flowers will be holograms. (My holograms will look better than Princess Leia and hopefully as good as CNNs). Instead of soil, my garden will be covered with motherboards. And some keyboards. But only the cute, clear, clicky clicky Apple keyboards.
Instead of pests, I'll reboot my garden after resetting my cache, and I'll be good to go. Birds will be replaced with Twitter, and then we'll all kill ourselves.
But seriously. Now that I've set you in a panic with the above scenario (breathe in, breathe out, deep cleansing breaths, you can do it) just take in this beauty:
That's my summer office in the garden. Or it could be with this cool little office pod. Then I could see all of the weeds germinating while I'm stuck on a multi hour conference call. Or I could go cordless and pull those weeds while putting that conference call on mute. Hey now, that's not a bad idea....
But then I saw this little gadget, hat tip to my friend DaYo, who sent it along, right after we had just chatted about how he needed a time lapse camera to prove how amazingly fast bamboo grows in the spring in his Portland garden.
Hello, genius. A weather proof time-lapse camera that can record your growing prowess over the course of 4 months and 2 GBs. Read about it here.
My high tech garden is almost complete! World domination shall be next!
