I'm new to the board, but 4 years into SFG. Here's what I'm looking for advice on. I've got one 4X4 bed that has a trellis for inderminate plants (peas, summer squash, tomatoes).
I've never had good luck with this bed as far as production. I'll admit early to not having a soil test. what I'm wondering about long-term is that I'm planting my first heirloom tomatoes this year. the last few years have been mostly squash that haven't performed.
The plants look really healthy, and i'm on top of pruning etc. this year. My long term question is, if successful, how long can i plan on planting tomatoes in this bed? what can i do to extend this time period, if there's a problem?
This is my only bed with a trellis. i'm not averse to buiding another and mixing it up with rotation, but i'm curious as to how long you've been able to grow any vegetables in the same plot, and what affects that?
Thanks in advance,
