We’ve begun sowing our last round of crops for the three sisters plot: beans. We have chosen Genuine Cornfield. These are beauties with green pods and mottled reddish brown beans; pre-Colombian genetics once again. We sow three beans around each established corn stalk. (This corn is only three-weeks old!) The corn will continue to grow and give support to the beans. The beans will provide much-needed nitrogen to the corn.
Our first plot has come a long way, but we haven’t even harvested anything yet, and in the next few weeks, we are going to build two more smaller plots for cabbages.
