Using Crop Rotation To Keep Tomato Plants Healthy


Candi JohnsI am about to bust all your crop-rotating hopes and dreams.

I have bad news.

I have experience.

I have tomatoes.

I have tried rotating.

I have tried companion planting.

I have topdressed with loads of compost.

I have have amended the beds.

So that's why my garden suddenly hates me. I'm 5 (maybe 6, can't remember just now) years in and having trouble despite faithfully rotating every year. But my raised beds are in a 45 x 50 foot area. Maybe I need to move the whole shebang up to Snake Country (shudder). Or just grow lots of tomatoes once every 5 years? Naaaahhh... I like the mobile tomato patch idea.
