About this Garden Plan

This is my Three Sisters area, with corn, beans and squash. I've added companions of nasturtium, marigold and dill, to hopefully help keep the squash bugs at bay. I also plan to throw around some mint leaves as mulch to keep them away--anything I can do to keep those buggers off my precious squash! See my main garden plan as well!
