"Smart gardening without coding - all free and open source" is an interesting and inspiring article about how to set up an automated watering system using a rain barrel to collect #RainWater, a #RaspberryPi Zero W, #FOSS software from nymea.io and some hardware sensors and modules: https://www.hackster.io/michael_zanetti/smart-gardening-without-coding-all-free-and-open-source-76b126

@opensourcegardens these projects are very cool. Would be "even more Open Source" using @PINE64 hardware instead of Raspberry Pi (both are cool, though). And unlike the Raspberry Pi, you can still buy hardware from Pine64 right now.
@magnus919 In what way are Raspberry less open source? @opensourcegardens @PINE64
@forteller @opensourcegardens @PINE64 the Raspberry Pi Foundation contributes generously to the Open source ecosystem, but the devices themselves are not Open Source. https://opensource.com/resources/raspberry-pi
@magnus919 I see. Thanks! @opensourcegardens @PINE64
