The most cared for palm trees in human history! Well done.

Any Palm that has this level of automation in its growing process is worthy of a Gadgeteer gadget.

@ Duke Nukem - excellent stuff, now v2 with automagic watering via servo control please :wink:

HI,Duke, I don’t see any network device in your figure?
and in zip file, there have several projects, but why you do not import the NetworkingService project?

Given its a Cerberus mainboard running the latest 4.2 network firmware and I’m using an ENC28 Module for networking all I have to do is

                _ni = NetworkInterface.GetAllNetworkInterfaces()[0];

                if (!_ni.IsDhcpEnabled)

                if (_ni.IPAddress != "")
                    Debug.Print("IP Address:" + _ni.IPAddress);
            catch (Exception exception)
                throw new ArgumentException("Could not resolve host via DNS.", exception);

Of course I’m always open to any possible improvements people are willing to suggest.
