How to get the garden ready for next spring

Asked September 19, 2018, 8:08 AM EDT

The summer vegetables are on their last legs. Except for the few fall vegetables most of my garden beds are done. How can I get these beds ready for next spring. I heard that fall is the best time to do it.

Clean up/sanitation is an important fall task, as is taking actions to improve and protect your soil.
Keep those fallen leaves- they can help reduce erosion, act as a mulch, and be turned in as an organic amendment later.
Take a look at "Fall Tasks" on the bottom of this page from our website:
