Ok folks, you're going to have to bear with me on this one. I was going to have a guest blogger to explain the Three Sisters gardening technique but that fell through, so I'm on my own with this one. Fortunately I have been reading a ton of articles and tips so I should know what I'm talking about by now... I hope!
Before I begin, I have a few amazing updates on my previous projects. My kitchen garden is still holding strong, minus one succulent that I didn't think had much of a chance when I planted it. My pain relief lotion is still my favorite go-to remedy for my aches and pains. Oh. and the most amazing update is that my home girl, Louise, from South Africa finally got the post card I sent to her back in the beginning of this whole adventure!

#3. In theory, within a couple of weeks, your corn should be sprouted and somewhere around 6 inches inches tall. This is assuming everything has gone well and you have sewn your seeds correctly. Shortly after your beans should also start sprouting. I am just proud as a peacock to say that a few of my corn and beans have already begun to spring into life!
The wonderful thing about the Three Sisters garden is that you can plant it on any scale. Even if you only have a tiny urban yard you can still have a very productive garden in a relatively small space. If corn and beans aren't your thing, the Three Sisters aren't the only companion plants you can try. I'm offering a new printable companion vegetable guide at the top of the page! Happy gardening, and congrats to Michelle who was the lucky winner of the My 17 in '17 Garden Contest!
