    Heidi Bohan, author of "The People of Cascadia" talks about the Native
    American agriculture in the pacific northwest hundreds of years ago.

    She explains that the native american people that were here then were
    well beyond "hunter gatherer". They had an agriculture all their own.
    Much like permaculture.

    This year I have Hidatsa beans and Hopi blue corn in the works for the garden. I'm in the mood for beans and tortillas. I've never had luck with squashes here, so no 3-sisters for me.

    How ironic, I was just checking out Hopi blue dent. :)
