There are three sisters, winter squash, corn and beans. Our winter squash plantings will look very different this year. The two outside rows on each bed will be planted to our regular squash. The center row will have a mix of corn and beans. This combination is called the three sisters after the traditional Native American plantings.
We will lay drip lines down each row once the seed is planted to germinate the seedlings. This not only saves water but also keeps down the weeds. The weeds that germinate will be removed with our finger weeder which now has the special attachments to pick up the drip line while the weeds are removed and then drop it down back in place. I have some great varieties of ugly pumpkins for the pumpkin party in October.
