The Harvest Matching app works to let you know when your garden is ready to be harvested so that you can efficiently enjoy ripe homegrown produce. Designer Ke Chang-Han created the app in order to help urban farmers get the most out of their gardens.

Harvest Matching works to alert you of your garden's status through an elongated solar-powered gadget. All you have to do is stick the device into the soil of your garden. After connecting your smartphone to the gadget, Harvest Matching allows you to get notifications about the ripeness of the produce in your micro-farm.

Chang-Han's concept app was created as a submission for the 2013 Electrolux Design Lab. Harvest Matching is currently a semi-finalist.
