In this instructable I will be showing you how to create your very own automated herb garden using the intel edison and some sensors and devices for the Grove collection of Seeed Studio. I have attached a collection of videos for this.
Step 1: Setting Up the Mechanical
In this video we will be looking at how to put together the automated herb garden.
You will need the following supplies:
3/16 x 1/4 barb fitting http://www.lowes.com/pd_69301-104-LFA96___?productId=3134975&pl=1&Ntt=barb
1/4in push fit adapter http://www.lowes.com/pd_383547-104-PL-3060___?productId=3592276&pl=1&Ntt=watts+quick+connect
Planter box http://www.lowes.com/pd_127622-41822-SW2412BK_0__
Grow light bulbs http://www.lowes.com/pd_76958-3-12453___

Goof plugs http://www.lowes.com/pd_88275-1029-MLA-51G___?productId=1103263&pl=1&Ntt=goof+plugs
Vynal Tee http://www.lowes.com/pd_106333-13598-307010B___?productId=3136237&pl=1&Ntt=vinal+tee+drip
Step 2: Arduino Code
In this video we will be looking at the arduino code for this system. I will be going through the detailed process of how the code works for the intel edison. This video will be long so sit back and enjoy.

Step 3: Option - Weaved Smartplug Grow Light
In this video we will be looking at the option of using the Weaved smartplug to control grow lights. This code could also be used with another eidson or possible raspberry pi solution.
If interested in the Weaved smartplug and would like to aquire one for yourself you can contact weaved at firstname.lastname@example.org and they can get you set up with one.

Step 4: Demo
Another Demo Time!!
In this Demo we will be demoing the Automated Garden system. I will be showing how all the code and hardware works together so enjoy.
