Succession Planting Vegetables

Succession planting is an important component of gardening. This means that after one crop is done, you plant another. This maximizes the use of space in the garden. I started succession gardening several years ago by putting in warm weather crops after my peas were done.
Now, I succession garden 9 months a year. In this video I am putting in carrots after I harvest lettuce. If I kept planting lettuce in the same spot the nutrients needed for the lettuce would quickly be used up. So each time I change crops, I try to plant ones that have different nutrient needs. After the crop is done, I pull out the spent plants and then amend the soil with some manure, peat and new soil. This helps to get soil ready for the new plants.
