It’s also a great time to prepare garden beds for next year.
Mark new beds (or the beds you want to extend) with marking paint or a hose.
Cut an edge, turning this dirt into the new bed, and cover with 8 to 10 layers of newspaper.
Cover with about 4 inches of chopped leaves or composted leaf mulch.
Now sit back and let nature take her course. Your bed will be ready for planting in the spring.
