2011 garden rotation

My garden beds are labeled on a sheet of graph paper, so I can know which bed is which.
A, B , C, D, E, F, G, and H are raised beds - very slightly raised, and ranging from 2x8 to 4x8.
N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, and U are 3x25 wide rows. 

The raised beds rotate in pairs, as do the wide rows, so I basically have a 4-year crop rotation.
Except, I always seem to manage to do something each year that throws off the rotation, but in general it works well.
This year, I am not growing the usual large number of potatoes, instead I am probably growing extra beans.


A and B:  potatoes (small crop this year)
C and D:  zucchini, cucumbers
E and F:  brassicas, radishes, turnips
G and H:  lettuce, fenugreek, spinach, chard, beeds

N:  tomatoes
O:  peppers
P:  squash
Q:  squash, melons
R:  peas
S:  carrots, onions
T and U:  beans

Friending welcome, but lurking is fine too.

Constructive criticism is also welcome - whatever it is, trust me, I've heard worse.
