This year we planted the “trinity” in my son and daughter-in-law’s garden; corn, beans and squash. They are companionable plants and typically grown by Native Americans. In records describing the first encounters of Native Americans and Europeans, the Europeans commented on the natives’ size. The Native American diet was much healthier than the European. Most tribal members were over 6′ tall. Some, like the Osage, were over 7′.
Hiking down Salt Creek outside of Canyonlands National Park we stood in amazement looking at squash plants growing outside of ancient dwelling, abandoned hundreds of years ago.
