Beans and gourds can be grown with maize, beans provide nitrogen to the two others plants, beans climb up the maize and gourd provides shade at the foot of the two others which will then need less watering. The shadow provided by the gourd will also prevent the growing of unwanted weeds.

When the maize reaches 6 inches put 3 beans of climbing beans around each maize a week later saw one gourd.

In France we call these three plants the three sisters.

Hope this helps !
