  • My area is small. I want to grow a few crops and have enough to can. Since I do not want to grow the crops needed to rotate, I like to get advice on how to rotate crops such as bush beans,beets, tomatoes, peppers, and potatoes. We would like peas but space is an issue. I could do ground covers in some areas. We compost and till in leaves. We also mulch with paper and leaves.
