3 Sisters Garden

3 Sisters Garden planting grid

We planted a square foot garden version of the 3 Sisters Garden on Labor Day, September 24, 2010.  Here is the planting grid.   B = Beans, C = Corn, and S= Squash.   Plant corn first.  2 weeks later plant beans.  They will use the corn as a trellis.  2 weeks later plant squash.  This time you will let the squash meander on the ground instead of growing it vertically.  It will help keep moisture in the soil.

Here’s a pic of the garden plot in progress:3 Sisters Garden November 17, 2010 I’ll add more pics later, to show you the corn stalks are higher than I can reach.
