RE: crop rotation
I agree with all said so far. To add to the topic, I would say to be
aware of crop diseases (and pests to a lesser extent) in your garden.
Most fungal diseases, when present in sufficient numbers, will persist
in the soil laying in wait for the right host.
Adding lots of compost and organic matter, like Adam mentioned,
significantly reduces the problems with soil borne diseases. So I
commend the Clinton Community Gardeners and suggest we all do the same.
In such condensed spaces, every gardener is bound to suffer from one
gardener's crop disease.
An ounce of prevention...!

Subject: [cg] crop rotation
Should gardeners who have small field-style plots -- 10 x 10, 10 x 20,
30, etc.-- rotate crops each year? Some in our community of gardeners
"yes" and others "no". Is there a general guideline someone can point me
regarding this issue?
Your help with this is appreciated.
