I did the sister's one year..
The patch of pumpkins under it,
was soooooooo wild and outta control..
The poor beans on the back side, didn't get
much sun, but the one's in front produced like craaazzzzzzzzzzzzy!!
Just couldn't get into the patch to pick anything.
It was sooooo over populated with "Greenery"
I have the raised beds now, so I don't have
room for doing it that way any more..
Butttttttt I do always plant
peas at the base of my corn..
The peas don't do allllll that well, but the corn loves it..
*I sacrafice those peas to the corn for the corn to grow*
peas in several other places to get my pea crop...
and I don't really plant
the beans, cause no one here eats 'em and I couldn't see wasting growing
But I did grow three different colors that year, green, yellow, and purple beans and they all did fantastic...
