I’m planting a Three Sisters garden this year – corn, beans, and squash all in the same bed. The corn went in a couple weeks ago, and I wanted to plant the beans tonight. I had planned to plant all Hidatsa Shield Figure beans, and then I thought…why not plant exactly what beans we eat? I went to the pantry and dug out three jars of beans: black turtle beans, garbanzos, and lentils. They are now planted along with two rows of the Hidatsas.
Will they grow? I think so. They are all organic and reasonably fresh (I think…). I have no idea how well any of these produce…but that’s the point of this experiment. To see how they grow. Do you have any idea what a lentil looks like on the vine? I sure don’t…but I hope to find out!
