Three Sisters Garden

This is the start (humble start) of my "Three Sisters Garden", an Iroqouis tradition of planting the "three sisters", corn, beans and squash. The idea is to plant the corn, let the beans crawl up the corn and have the squash provide ground cover to the other plants. My take on it involves the string/grid setup, where I have 1-foot squares in the 4x8 garden bed, giving me 32 equal squares (shout out to Boing Boing for a more detailed listing).

More details about the practice and legend at this Three Sisters Site.
