3 sisters gardening is fascinating!
I worked for a landscaping company a few years back and learned about it. What I will tell you (if you have not already googled it, which I would recommend!) is that this type of gardening plants items that work well together, for instance,
These 3 use up less space and assist each other by what they offer. The corn gives height and shade as well as a place for the beans to grow. The squash covers the ground, retains moisture and utilizes what would have been wasted space.
I have NOT put this in a scientific, maybe not even totally accurate manner, but this is what I remember! I thought it was a wonderful thing!
Always offer kindness and a soft word to the beings around you; You do not know their journey. Your words can be the hug they need or the shove that breaks them.
