Crop rotation plan

Crop rotation is one of the most important weapons in an organic gardener’s arsenal. This quick video explains how to set up a simple crop rotation plan.

Crop rotation is key to a successful organic vegetable garden. Rotating crops from one area to another helps to prevent diseases and pests from building up in a certain area, and it can also help to enrich the soil and provide additional benefits to the crops that come later.

However, it can also be somewhat difficult to keep your crop rotation plan organized if you grow a lot of different crops.

Using a color-coded crop rotation map, or a simple plan like this garden planner software, can help you to make sure you are planting things in the optimal place from year to year.

Here’s why and how to set up an easy crop rotation plan to help your garden perform at its best this year:

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
