We are using a plot that had held some potatoes last year. Since we didn't use it this spring, the area grew thick with weeds. So the first step was to cut the green way back, mowing and weeding.
Then I (Bryan) dug up the soil, loosening it for the plants to come. Not a deep dig, but enough for the little seeds to get going. I dug lines, about one foot apart.

Next step, planting. We put in pairs of corn seeds along each row, about 30 inches apart. Close by them we stuck in beans (which will climb up the corn stalks).
