WANTED: Crop Rotation - Tomatoes

Posted by brianc2112 z8 Buckley WA (My Page) on

I have a bunch of cedar boxes that I have filled with Cedar Grove Compost. The boxes were put in two years ago. I have grown tomatoes in these boxes for the past two years. The boxes have drip irrigation. The rest of the veggie garden has overhead spray irrigation. (see Veggie Garden 2012)

I don't really have a different place to grow my tomatoes, and I know crop rotation is important.

Is it okay to try to amend the heck out of the soil and continue to grow the tomatoes in this area?

BTW, I have sown Territorial Seeds Green Manure in these in the fall, so there is a different crop growing in there now.

I plant my tomatoes in the same place every year and they grow well. I top dress with lots of compost in early spring. I add additional compost for a fertilizer boost during the summer.
