Companion planting is a technique that utilizes different crops to maximize space, provide homes for beneficial insects, and enriches the soil to encourage vigorous plant growth.
Here we used one of the oldest combinations of planting corn, pole beans, and squash. The corn provides the trellis for the pole beans while the legume enriches the soil with nitrogen to be used by both corn and squash. Squash is planted to take care of the weeds as the large leaves rob them of sun
And we now have purple corn! Just a bit over 50 days after planting, we see the fruits of our labors. Purple corn is rich in phytochemicals and antioxidants - best of all, our corn is grown naturally!
