Because of a BUSY, BUSY, BUSY schedule, we did not do an update for July. We went through the usual phases of transferring from certain crops to others to better fit the weather. Pictured is a small sampling of our pickings during that period.
Our temps have been right around 100 lately, sometimes higher at the peak of the day, sometimes a little lower here in Central Texas, so the virtues of water conservation that keyholes offer favorably come into play.

Of note, several schools have begun offering students an opportunity to grow crops with our keyhole garden kits and recently one of our kits was on display at the Eastern Michigan State Fair, sponsored by the Lapeer County Master Gardener Association, thanks to Ken Mitchell, vice president.
People throughout the country are learning more and more about the virtues of utilizing keyholes to grow crops efficiently, conserve water, and have bountiful returns. Several have sent us photos of their successes which we greatly appreciate.
