The Cuecumber Cam

This spring, I invested in a greenhouse. As soon as the green stuff was growing, the little nerd in me saw some room for improvement. I got a Raspberry Pi model A, a solar charger case from cottonpicker’s and a cheap webcam. As it turns out, the batteries from the solar case only provide an around 4.8V, so the webcam sort of killed the system over night, and then the charging plus booting never actually got the system reliably running during each day. The results of 3 weeks in the field is the following little timelapse showing cuecumbers…
