THE THREE SISTERS

THE THREE SISTERS


Native Americans used to garden with the 3 sisters - corn, squash and beans.

They planted corn and when it sprouted, planted pole beans around each stalk of corn so the beans would go up the corn.

They planted squash (pumpkins, winter squash, vining types) in between the rows.

This conserved space and also reduced the amount of weeding required.
