Background: Raised beds (Bed A is raised off the ground, 32 sq'; Bed B is on the ground, 16 sq'); mix of compost, peat & vermiculite.
This year's crops: Bed A: Spinach, leaf lettuce, parsley, bell peppers, basil, rosemary, thyme, yellow squash, cilantro. May throw some chives in there for the heck of it. Bed B: snap peas (failed to sprout), tomatoes, pepperoncini, cukes, rosemary, sage. Both beds have some marigolds planted here and there.
I know you're not supposed to plant the same things every year in the same place (especially things like beans and peas). But when you only have a small planting area, and some things (like tomatoes), only work for you in certain spots....what do you do? I'm trying to do Square Foot Gardening due to my limited space. If I mix all the dirt around in the beds prior to them freezing in the winter, would that sufficiently mix things up so that I can plant the same crops in the same spots next year (though I plan to *try* to let the rosemary and parsley overwinter where there are, just as an experiment)?
What's the risk if I just can't get things into different spaces?
