Planting a section of garden the way native Americans in our area used to plant their crops.

The corn, with pole beans and winter squash. The corn grows tall, the beans grow up the corn and the squash covers the ground. Doing this with the squash is to help keep the soil moister and keeps the weeds down. This will be field corn so most of the crops wouldn't be picked till fall.
