Three Sisters

Submitted by: VEHAMILTON1
Three Sisters

Introduction

Early Native Americans developed a companion planting method for their plantations to provide the most yield from their crops called the "Three Sisters".

The first sister is beans. Beans have vines that need tall poles to grow on and are planted next to the second sister, corn.

Corn lends it's tall straight stalks to the climbing vines and in return the beans roots bring nitrogen to the soil that corn needs to produce a large crop.
