I have NOT heard that "tomatoes love tomatoes".  I have had poor tomato 
crops that I attributed to poor rotation.  I try to plant 
tomatoes/eggplant/peppers/potatoes no more often than every third year 
on any patch.

Like all things agriculture, it's more art than science, more guessing 
than knowing.

Willie, ONWARD!  Through the fog!
