Hi, Steve, and welcome.
Corn, pole beans and squash comprise the 3 sisters. The idea being that they benefit each other by being interplanted. The beans have somewhere to climb, as they feed the corn and squash, but I forget how the squash benefits the others. I think that it might be that it discourages deer and raccoons from wandering around in the corn. :?: I know that the deer stopped browsing my garden when the squash filled in the aisles.
