For an organic vegetable garden, rotate your crops. Crop rotation is an important aspect of the organic vegetable garden. It is all about planting groups of similar vegetables together in a different part of the garden each year. Crop rotation is vital in reducing the build-up of certain pests. Pests and diseases tend to target vegetable groups remaining in the soil for years, and rotation practices will prevent them from building up in the soil.
