ive written several times about the keyhole garden

basically it is a central 1 ft composter in a 6 ft diameter
circular garden that is raised 3 ft
a keyhole segment is left open so that you can step in
and reach all of the garden
the bottoms and sides are covered with cardboard
and newspaper
soil or soil making ingredients are added
the central composter provides nutrition to the soil
as its watered it

the guru of this method is dr deb tolman
she will be a guest on the pbs show
klru central texas gardener tomorrow
if you are thinking about doing this type of garden
watch this show
as she is the expert on this type of garden

her website is www.debtolman.com

the klru website where you can see this show
online is here
