As the growing season is coming to an end in this part of the country, I have a question. How do you prepare your garden/plot/area for next year's planting? What do you do to the ground for or how do you leave the ground for the winter months? Do you do nothing? Do you clear everything off and discard or put on compost pile. Some people clear off the garden/pile and burn the leftovers on the garden and add the ash to the soil. Do you plow/till and ready for next spring? Do you plow and leave open to the freezing weather of the winter? Do you add manure/fertilizer and till in and leave for next spring? What have you done and what works for you? Thanks in advance.
