I never knew about crop rotation until this year. (It's been ten years since my last vegetable garden.) This explains alot of the problems I had in the past. So, I want to do it correctly.
My growing season is so long that I can easily get three crops per year. So, here's my question. All the books I have read on potagers say shoot for at least a three year (four is better) crop rotation. But, if I grow, say, a crop of cabbages, followed by tomatoes, followed by beans, all in one year, does this mean I have to wait three or four years before I can grow any of those crops in that bed again? Or, does it mean not to grow the same thing in the bed for at least three more crop seasons?
