Dan hose best

Serious hose

Dan has embarked on a crazy scheme – he is trying to connect a hose to the internet so he can water his tomato plants remotely by typing some commands into his computer. He is writing a rival blog about it here. On the surface it may seem like a good idea to get your computer to water your plants for you but some people have pointed out that he could just ask his neighbour to do it. Too many things are done by computer these days, meaning we are losing the ability to communicate with people face to face. Surely the point of gardening is to have a direct connection with the land/soil and not to garden by proxy with robots, Dan? Anyway, I have told Dan that my friend’s friend’s brother-in-law’s brother-in-law claims to have already connected a hose to the internet meaning Dan is on a quest for a Holy Grail (or Hosely Grail) that has already been found.
