May 18, 2016 – Three Sisters

Hello, it’s Andres. Today in the garden Deb, Nina, and I worked on the corner of the garden. We made small mounds for our corn, squash, and beans for our “three sister planting.” The style of planting is used so the corn can be the pole for the beans to grow up, the corn can also give the squash shade, the squash is a live mulch to keep in all the moisture, and the beans produce nitrogen for the corn.

Today’s gardening was very nice. The symmetry that was done was very pleasing to look at. It was very good gardening today.
