Can vegetables be planted same area each year?
I would like to know which vegetables do not follow each other from year to year? I know that tomatoes are an acid plant. Please list these in your answer. I live in zone 8. Chattahoochee , Florida. Thank you!
It is a good idea to rotate vegetable crops' location from year to year. The primary reason is to avoid diseases and insects that can build up over time. But you need not start a new garden each year. Simply shift the plants that are closely related around from year to year. For example, tomatoes, peppers and eggplants all belong to the same plant family, so avoid planting them where any of those crops were growing last year. Beans and peas are in the legume family; broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage are cole crops; and onions, leeks, and shallots are related.
