I planted my 3 Sisters garden today. The 3 Sisters are the technique of planting corn, beans, and squash all together and they all grow together without competing.
I planted rows of sweet corn, the white open-pollinated corn I got from Sam Taulbee, and sunflowers. Then I seeded squash, pumpkins, and pole beans in the rows with the corn and sunflowers.
This will all be without herbicides since I don’t know what I could spray that wouldn’t kill one of those things I planted. I hope our tiller keeps running all season!
Spenser helped me plant the garden. Mainly by digging a huge hole in the ground.
And when he got tired of digging, he followed me up and down the rows. He’s a hard working dog.
