when it comes to crop rotation and succession cropping square foot gardening
 is different from other systems. both are built into system.depending on the 
growing season length. you can have 2-3 succession crops.  
here are few examples:  peas, beans then peas.
lettuce tomatoes then spinach. onion ,then fall cabbage, 
beets, or chard, bell peppers then winter carrots. the secret 
with square for gardening pick the primary crop then buffer it
 before or after by quick growing crops or cool season crops.

In my zone, succession means summer crops, followed by winter crops.

Both comments are helpful to me.  I could use more examples.
In my zone, I think we can have Spring crops, Summer Crops, and Fall crops.
I've been trying to get my head around what that means all year.
Can someone in a similar zone help me out with simple examples like Wargarden gives?
(And I'll ask local friends. But so far, responses have been sorta random.)
I would be helped greatly by a general "planting plan" as shown in the video that
OhioGardener linked to.   That's what I'm looking for.

Spring, last frost, April 20.
Fall, first frost, Oct 30

4 dates?  Like everywhere, our shortest and longest  days  the of the year are the Equinox...  I'm feeling clueless!  We might get snow some years by early January but all bets are off. This Summer, July and August it was hot enough to be unusual and harder than normal in plants, we should have put up shade cloth. 

Wargarden, I meant to go look at the Excel sheet I had started last Spring, and look for the sliderule planting guide I think I ordered last Spring as well.   (I remember the print on that was tiny, a challenge at my age!)   

But I have been busy all week cramming for a Ham Radio test.  (Took it yesterday and I passed! Any Hams here, send me a pm?!  I am waiting on my call sign.)  

So the garden beds, both the raised beds and the earth boxes on the porch, have been neglected this week.  I have some plants to be planted! Kales, broc, cabbage?  This is our priority today although it was raining this morning with more expected, and was suddenly chilly overnight,  56 to 77F today. I can protect them with a mini greenhouse.

I prefer to use just two dates: The Average First Frost date, and the Average Last Frost Date.  Those averages are based on the 1991-2020 Climate Normals from NOAA, and they are pretty close to reality. Our Average First Frost date is October 12th, and this year we had the first frost on October 8th.
