The Three Sisters are part of a popular technique that comes from the tribes of North America, used for growing their primary nourishment efficiently and spiritually.
The Three Sisters are corn, beans, and squash.
These were the first crops to be domesticated in a sustainable and sophisticated way to give fertility to the soil in a significant amount of time, and that helped to promote a healthy diet throughout generations.
All you have to do is plant corn, beans, and squash in the same hole.
Corn will grow and provide the stem for the bean to crawl up. Corn extracts nitrogen from the soil, and beans offer it. Later, squash acts as the necessary mulch to cover the earth and give humidity to the land in dryer times.
In terms of nutritional facts, they also complement each other: corn provides the carbohydrates, beans are rich in protein, and squash give us the necessary vitamins in the fruit and oil in the seeds.
Do you know any other vegetable symbiosis?
