This method is particularly useful for homesteaders who want to maximize their harvest and give themselves time to preserve what they are harvesting before the next crop is ready.
Succession planting requires careful planning and organization, but it can significantly increase your harvest and ensure a continuous supply of fresh produce throughout the growing season.
It also allows you to experiment with different varieties of crops, so you can determine which ones grow best in your area.
As soon as plants — such as lettuce, spinach and peas — have passed their prime, pull them out and replant.
Make sure to keep track of your planting schedule and take notes on how each crop performs.
