three sisters garden, week 3

Look, our corn is a finger's length high! Time to plant the other two sisters (the beans and the squash).

First, we planted the beans in the sides of the mounds our corn is growing in, one hole in each of the four directions, one bean per hole:

Then we raked up new mounds between the corn mounds, and planted our squash seeds in those, again, one seed for each of the four directions.

We got creative with our "squash", planting two varieties of summer squash, as well as cucumbers, watermelons, and pumpkins.

Above, our sunflowers are also coming up!

Below, what our garden looks like now.

By next week our corn will be a hand's length high, which means it will be time to weed our garden!
