Native Americans are credited with the planting of three main native crops. These plants were squash, maize (corn) and beans. They were planted together, with the cornstalk providing support for the climbing beans, and shade for the squash. The squash vines provided ground cover to limit weeds. No one likes weeds including squash! The beans provided a nitrogen fix for all three crops.
