Food Gardening Network, publisher of Food Gardening Magazine, has released their September 2022 issue, giving readers a closer look at the traditional companion planting trio of corn, beans, and squash.
With four feature videos and articles, the September issue of Food Gardening Magazine reviews the vegetables gardeners can plant in September, and how to harvest and save fresh herbs and pumpkin seeds. This issue also introduces readers to traditional “Three Sisters” planting methods that will provide a bountiful harvest of vegetables that store well and can keep a family fed throughout the winter.
Senior Editor Amanda MacArthur describes the combination: “The Three Sisters is a perfect ‘I’ve got your back’ style of planting, and the best part is that all three can either be dried or stored for the winter. The three also create a nutritional balance of carbohydrates, protein, and vitamins.”
For gardeners interested in this traditional planting method, The Three Sisters of Companion Planting gives readers the details of planting corn, beans, and squash together, including when to start each vegetable and how to space them appropriately in the garden.
Then, in 5 Vegetables to Plant in September, readers will learn that there are still a number of vegetables that prefer to grow in the cooler fall temperatures. For readers who want to save as much as possible for the winter, How to Harvest Fresh Herbs in the Fall to Use All Winter and How to Start Saving and Cooking Pumpkin Seeds offer valuable guidelines on prepping and storing these garden staples.
The September issue of Food Gardening Magazine also includes in-depth articles about summer squash, green beans, and corn. These articles explore Food Gardening Network’s latest gardening guides while providing valuable information on their own. Subscribers get instant access to the premium gardening guides themselves, too.
In What to Do With Summer Squash, readers can find out how to get the most out of this prolific garden vegetable and make the harvest last, from canning to freezing to making summer squash chips.
In 10 Green Bean Companion Plants and 5 To Avoid Planting Nearby, gardeners can discover that beans grow well next to corn and squash, as well as a number of other plants. Even so, there are some that do not make good companions in the garden.
And in How to Hand-Pollinate Corn and Stop Growing Single-Kernel Cobs, gardeners can learn how to get a good harvest of corn without growing the usually recommended 25 or more plants.
The September issue of Food Gardening Magazine offers readers four feature articles, four accompanying videos, and three Gardening Guide Close-Ups spotlighting corn, green beans, and summer squash. These gardening guides offer comprehensive, in-depth information about a single fruit, herb, or vegetable, from starting seeds to dealing with pests and diseases and from nutrition facts to delicious recipes.

Food Gardening Network launched in January of 2021 as an all-encompassing resource for gardeners of all skill levels, with in-depth articles on planning, planting, maintaining, and harvesting home garden crops. Food Gardening Network also includes easy-to-prepare recipes so home gardeners can enjoy the fruits of their labors in delicious, creative ways.
