If I Were a Robot

Certain days, we all feel like robots. Let the dogs out, morning coffee, warm the car up, whatever it is; some things qualify as one robotic routine. But here’s the Friday brainteaser. If I were a robot, what would I grow? Here’s a link to show you what’s shaking in the environment and agricultural world. Click on it if you want to be intrigued.

There are some robots, whether in prototype stage or not, which are being designed to do everything, which includes beating you at games like Connect Four. There are robots that even have ‘soul.’ Check out this Ted Talk but trust me, these videos are long.

For those of us dragging our heels on this next revolution so to speak, there is no way around it. Robots are here and here to stay; designed and developed to do more than menial or mindless chores. But there’s something magical about letting the dogs out, sipping that first cup of coffee, and doing the mindless garden chores.

If I were a Robot, I would have stayed in this morning when it was a miserable 3 degrees. But I’m not a bear or one of our many plants in dormancy. There’s still too much life occurring and too many things to plan for the spring. But back to my initial question, if I were a robot, what would I grow? It would be that beautiful blush pink Peony with such a pretty name – ‘Sarah Bernhardt’. Oh, yeah. I did and I enjoy its June beauty when it’s in full blossom. 

Now unless you have a robot, get cranking on your garden and design plans for spring. And the #DailyQuote is…“At bottom, robotics is about us. It is the discipline of emulating our lives, of wondering how we work.” ~ ROD GRUPEN, Discover Magazine, June 2008
