Early summer is the best. The days are warm and pleasant, and a walk through the garden is a trip to the freshest, fullest farmer's market on the planet.
I get almost 5 pounds of fresh vegetables and herbs per square foot from this simple, organic, and sustainable keyhole garden, and you can too!
After a rough hot/cold winter that killed 3 separate rounds of seedlings, I'm trying again to get the vegetable garden started before spring.
This week is the 2nd anniversary of the keyhole garden. By my estimates, after 725 days of continuous production, we’ve raised 36 crops and harvested over 150 lbs of herbs and veggies from this 50sq ft space.
A reminder on this #TomatoTuesday, if you're an #organicgardener, the organisms get a share of the garden too.
Even watermelons are adorable when they're babies. This is Little Baby Flower, a compact plant that produces 10-12 fruit only 6" across when ripe. Perfect melon for 2.
