Vegetable Gardening: Fence Me In
I planted three tomatoes - two kinds; Early Girl and Better boy. I have seeds for a third kind which I will sow soon. After reading an article about planting tomatoes year after year in the same place I made an extra effort to make sure they are in a different bed this year. It is always a good idea to rotate crops. Each plant tends to take away and add something different to the soil. Planting the same crop in the same place year after year can cause the soil to be depleted of vital nutrients or become toxic with others.
