First made popular in Africa, keyhole gardens are catching on in Texas and other hot, dry places.
Keyhole gardens hold moisture and nutrients due to an active compost pile placed in the center of a garden bed. Although most helpful in hot and dry locations, a keyhole garden will improve growing conditions in just about any climate.
