Easy Crop Rotation Using the Colors of the Rainbow
“After designing the overall layout of your garden, the most important element of garden planning (and the part that recurs year after year, which is why you should spend time every winter thinking about it) is crop rotation – planting crops from the same botanical family in different positions each year. It may seem complicated, but there are really just two main approaches to crop rotation – rotating by edible parts, and rotating by crop family.”
Crop rotation within garden beds is vital to maintaining healthy and productive gardens. By rotating where your crops are planted, you can ensure your soil’s nutrients aren’t depleted and simultaneously help to ward of pests. And even though it’s not prime gardening season yet, now is the time to start planning your garden beds.
