Three Sisters

Posted by Hallee on Jun 8, 2011 in Gardening, Hallee's Galley

Three sisters is a Native American gardening technique called “intercropping”. Three plants – corn, squash, and beans – are planted together and work together. The green bean crawls up the corn stalk and uses it as a pole, nourishing the soil at its roots with nitrogen nodules in its roots, and the squash grows along the base of the corn and beans, providing ground cover to retain moisture and prevent weed growth.

Chilled Green Bean & Red ‘Tater Salad

A favorite to any pot luck. I don’t think a church dinner would be complete without chilled green bean and red potato salad.
