@Turan wrote:Your question about rotations with in the year is not quite answered though and is very good, especially if one gardened year round. Our winter break makes such a clear marker. But I think the answer is that it is most important to not follow nightshade family in succession no matter what. But beyond that it seems to work ok to succession plant with in the season the same thing in the same place. I do try to go from leafy greens to roots and vice versa. Maybe some one can tell us if there is a problem with following spring broccoli with fall broccoli?

I was just reading a book last night which said that you should never plant any of the brassica crops more often than every three years in the same spot. Not sure if it applies with SFG but thought I'd mention it on the off-chance that I might know something useful.
