Re: The Roots of Square Foot Gardening

The Iroquois used a three sisters method designed to account for the increased rainfall they received. Here they planted on mounds. Instead of a depression a mound is made about 4 inches high, on this mound the corn and beans are planted. This improves drainage and increases soil temperature. To help watering you can make a small crater at the top of the mound so all the water doesn't just roll down hill!
