I've not used Arduino before. I'm a good learner of most things, but most of this would be new to me.
I'd like to build what I think is a fairly simple device to measure the soil, things like temperature, moisture, humidity. And display it somewhere, or better still send it wirelessly to a nearby mobile device.
Does this sound simple enough for a first project?
Can anyone recommend specific items I should use; sensors, boards etc? Or any guides from others who have already built something like this? I can find a few via an internet search but I don't know if they are out of date or not.
