Poring over seed catalogs, trying to decide what to plant, is among the joys of gardening. Yet when planning your vegetable garden, remember that crop rotation—instead of planting the same crop in the same spot every year—can reduce problems with insects, nematodes, and diseases. The easy-to-read chart in this publication groups vegetables according to family—for example the onion, carrot, and nightshade families—and provides you with knowledge that is key to successful crop rotation.
