“I’ve heard a lot about the “three sisters” planting method. What exactly is this?” Question from John of Gatewood, Missouri
Answer: The Three Sisters Garden was a classic Native American planting method that included corn, beans, and squash; the staple crops for agrarian tribes. Basically, the squash and beans were planted at the base of the corn plants. As the corn grew, the stalks supported the twining beans and squash.
