That's an awesome raised keyhole bed. Great job!
It's not technically an "ARK" bed which is what the original picture that starts this thread is depicting,because it doesn't have a compost tube component. Is adding a compost pipe something you considered and decided against, or just something you never thought about or feel you don't need? I'm trying to decide how much the compost pipe does to eliminate watering in climates with inconsistent rainfall.

I'm surprised because I was trying to think of ways to improve upon Hemenway's keyhole beds to make them more drought-tolerant a year ago and I never came across these!
