In my experience, squash really don't like their vines being...squashed...

These arrangements don't have any paths but they do have decent space between each mound. I'm guessing the squash will fill in these spaces between mounds, so is it bad to step on the squash (vines?) which spreads out on the ground?
Brandon Griffin wrote:Hi Roger, I've attached the PDF. Hopefully, it's allowed here. The info about 3-sisters starts at page 6.
I'm glad to hear it's possible to hand water because I'm not really ready to setup permanent irrigation.
