Stuff I Would Invent If I Had TimeZooey Deschanel

The Green Thumb: This is a robot that’s good at gardening. He rolls around and finds all of those cherry tomato bushes you planted and kohlrabi seed rows you forgot about and actually cultivates them – unlike me, the world’s worst gardener.  He does the stuff I don’t want to do like digging, and watering and he remembers to do it. Then he picks the vegetables and brings them to you.  This is a HIGHLY intelligent robot. Might as well program him to cook dinner too, right? right? I mean, while he’s at it, might as well.

  1. Yes, please invent this! I definitely need one because I suck at gardening. I even managed to kill a cactus which, really, you don’t need to do anything to.

  2. Great idea Zooey!! Love it!! I’ve been watering my garden everyday since it has been over 100 degrees for days!

  3. PS that was intended to be a joke. I love you Zooey <3

  4. What if the robot malfunctions and tries to kill you? Being able to dig in the backyard isn’t such a good idea ;D

  5. Does it have to fit my hand?!?

  6. picking okra would be revolutionized!

  7. that’s a great invention. i’m not lke gardening, cuz i live in a building, but really is a good invention! Congrats Zooey you have great ideas for the world

  8. I figure if he’s picking the vegetables, and cooking dinner, can’t he plant them too. ;-)

  9. Nice shading on the hanging fruits, Zoobot.

  10. In addition to being helpful, The Green Thumb™ is also super adorable!! I’m thinking an introduction to Rosie is in order… imagine the cuuute robot babies! (They could smaller tasks, like snap fresh peas and french braid hair). This invention is gold.

  11. Dear Zooey, Do you need a gardener? I would be happy to come out and help you with your garden! No robot necessary. :)

  12. He sounds like a great husband;)

  13. I actually hold the title for the world’s worst gardener. I once killed a cactus… know the plant that needs maybe a second of your attention every year …yeah I killed it

  14. “Stuff I would invent if I had the time” – you know robotics?! :P

  15. you dont have time to invent it but you have time to draw it? problem?

  16. Great invention, all the perks of having a garden without all the hassle. This needs to happen..

  17. I bought a Mooli today, they’re like huge parsnips, only actually a radish, they’re Japanese though this one is from Holland, I was all set to make some Japanese food tonight till I was offered bangers and mash. Now I’m as torn as my sketch book. Please Mooli don’t be another sacrificial fridge vegetable!

  18. Note to self: Dress up as a robot, wear a sign that reads “The Green Thumb”, and show up at Zooey’s with fresh vegetables I picked from my garden.

  19. Can he keep the flowers alive while he’s out there?
