Plant Rotation in the Garden I have 6 or 7 sections in my home garden through which I want to rotate my crops. Full section crops are: Tomato Peppers Broccoli Squash Half Section crops are: Potatoes Beans Peas Onions This would allow for one fallow section each year. What do you recommend as a crop roation pattern for these sections?
