I miss the squash in this block. Corn, beans and squash are the Three Sisters that were always planted together, according to Native American tradtion (Iroquois, I think). Corn, being the primary crop, is growing better in community with other crops rather than on its own. Beans and squash each complement the growth of corn, and the three also benefit of each other. But we do have the Squash Blossom block in the sampler, so all in all the Three Sisters are growing together.
