Three sisters planting trial 2011

This year I have put bed no. 10 be my trialling bed for my ‘Three Sisters’ planting’… that is putting Sweet corns, Beans and Squashes together in one bed…. this mix and match planting has its own advantage for these three different kinds of plants….. 

Since this bed has been dug over during the winter months 2010, best bed to try on…..

The end result of all these three was the Squashes…. really champion for all my last three years outputs and that means I have lots of Courgettes, Marrows, Patti Pans, bountiful of those Lebanese white Bush Marrows…. Next best was the beans, my Borlotti Beans has a good year, my 2 tepees had bountiful and I have to recruit a helper for my beans harvest…. Unfortunately my sweet corns were not as my expect… mistake noted that they were put in centre of the bed as a crowd, which looks nice at the beginning but I found it difficult to access into the enlarged crowd to apply any TLC at the mid of its growing stage, therefore the yield was only half alright….

Here are some images I took for this project…..
