Dear Almanac readers,
Many readers ask us what to plant where. If you're going to grow a garden this year, the right layout makes all the difference.
Toward that goal, we share some advice and free garden designs in this issue of the Companion. For more experienced gardeners, we strongly advise rotating those crops when needed. Watch our video that makes crop rotation simple.
