family reunion

it may be difficult to make out the nascent squash plant in the first photo...but not the one in the second...the third sister has arrived in the garden and that's good news...when directly sown squash seeds can rot in overly moist green and leaves are what we want...all three plants are in the third photo and the bottom photo is of a pole bean plant putting out a vine...we will be helping it to find it way through to the maize and are on our way to a fairly complete helping of vegetable protein...this experiment in traditional native american gardening come to us courtesy of buffalobird woman and is going to be something of a focus ( for me, at least, and, by extension, you if you keep reading )..blooms and ears are ( hopefully ) the next step.
