We’re definitely not monocropping. Crop rotation is an essential component of our farming. We typically rotate spinach and lettuces with brassicas like broccoli and cauliflower. Not only do brassicas pull different things from the soil, but as members of the mustard family they act as a sort of natural fumigant – bugs don’t like how they smell. Well, neither do most of us if they’re left out in a warm room for too long.
