“When you enter the land I am going to give you, the land itself must observe a sabbath to the Lord. 3 For six years sow your fields, and for six years prune your vineyards and gather their crops. 4 But in the seventh year the land is to have a year of sabbath rest, a sabbath to the Lord. Do not sow your fields or prune your vineyards. 5 Do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the grapes of your untended vines. The land is to have a year of rest.”
5. Different crops!
You can grow different types of crops at same place on your land and it will be easy to monitor and manage all crops at the same time. This is also part of crop rotation, but here at different time you are sowing different kind of crops.
