Two sistas planting the Three Sisters

Erin Huntimer and Anine Lambert took on the important job of completing the Three Sisters Formation in Basin’s Backyard Garden June 16.

Last year was the first year we tried out that formation. Basically, once the corn is four inches tall, you plant the beans around the corn, and the squash between the corn stalks. Then, as they grow, the beans crawl up the corn and the squash keeps down the weeds. Learn more: Sowing Three Sisters formation in Basin’s Backyard Garden
