Garden Sunlight Tracking


I am doing a lot of gardening this year (tomatoes, peppers, hops, and a few other veggies). Different plants require different amounts of sunlight. In order to place my plants optimally, I wrote a Matlab script that calculates the amount of sunlight that will reach each area of my yard on a daily basis. Its pretty interesting to see how the sunlight varies throughout the year.
