Plant Rotation Suggestions for Hobby Farming

Part of the Hobby Farming For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Rotating the plants (crops) on your farm enhances plant health and soil quality. To rotate your plantings, divide your garden into several sections and plant each section with a different family of plant. Next year, plant something from the next family. For instance, plant squash in section one the first year; the next year, plant peas there; next year, plant tomatoes; and well, you get the idea.

Plant Family Examples
Gourds Squash, melons, zucchini, pumpkins, cucumbers
Legumes Beans and peas
Nightshades Eggplants, potatoes, peppers, and tomatoes
Carrots Carrot, dill, parsnips, and parsley
Mustards Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, mustard, radishes, and turnips
Beets Beets, spinach, and chard
Onions Onions, leeks, and garlic
