Vegetable garden plant rotation

Asked October 12, 2017, 3:53 PM EDT

Is it necessary to practice vegetable plant rotation if the soil is amended with compost for every planting? I practice succession and relay planting to extend the growing season. For example, after planting potatoes, I heavily compost then plant broccoli in the same bed. While the broccoli is growing, I have interplanted crimson clover. In the spring, after I cut off the clover flowers, I follow with more compost. Next summer, would I be able to repeat the potato/broccoli planting in the same bed?
