The Three Sisters is based on a Native American lore. The stories vary but what remains constant is the tradition of planting Corn, Beans and Squash together. The corn is planted first, followed by the beans and squash in a few weeks. The corn provides a stalk for the beans to grow up on, while the beans provide nitrogen to the corn and squash, and the squash provides shades for the roots and helps to retain moisture.
We combine our Butternut Squash, Golden Bantam Corn, and Connecticut Wonder Bean. Play around with any combination you like.
Instructions - There are many ways you can do plant a traditional three sisters garden. One method is to plant a plot of corn in a square and then plant the beans on the outer square, while the squash is then planted around the beans.
