Keyhole vegetable garden
Norman A. Plate

Keyhole vegetable garden

A central pathway wraps around this veggie patch, making working the beds a snap.

It's positioned so the opening faces south; the larger plants in back (beans, tomatoes, and sunflowers) won't shade smaller plants.

The gardener tilled the planting areas 8 to 12 inches deep, but didn't till the keyhole (path). As long as the ground there is packed, weeds will have a hard time sprouting.
