I practice successive planting, but I always leave opening for the big guys, there is an overlapping period between cool and warm crops, though things like radishes and spinach bolt quickly so those spots open up soonest. My final planting will be my butter nut squash which than rambles and shades out the weeds.
I have no luck either with fall plantings, by the time they get going we get a hard frost.
