Three Sisters in Containers

I'm wondering about the spacing for the three sisters - I have two containers I want to plant in, both about the size of a half-barrel. How many plants can I fit in, do you think? Any other advice for the three sisters is also welcome...this is an experiment for me! :)

RE: Three Sisters in Containers

Hi Waz,
If it was me I would plant 3 corn, 3 squash, and 6-9 beans. I tend to over crowd but if that is so you can always remove some. If one doesn't grow the next one will.
Good Luck to You
I hope it works out.
