Keyhole Garden Progress – March 4, 2020

By Published On: March 5th, 20200.6 min readCategories: Projects

The winter crops continue their rotation out of the bed. Broccoli is all done (save 1 plant), and the Romaine lettuce and peas are calling it quits as well.

We cut the cilantro down to an inch high to keep it leafy and stop it from bolting. I replaced the broccoli with cucumbers (National Pickling) over this past weekend and infilled some of the empty spot in the lettuces with spinach (Space) I’d been holding in the greenhouse.

Just a couple more weeks and the keyhole garden will have been in continuous production for a whole year and the soil is still as rich and loamy as ever. Pretty dang good performance for such a simple raised bed design.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
