Cultivating Soil

Is fall a good time to cultivate my soil?

Fall is a great time to prepare the soil for spring planting.  Add shredded leaves, compost or other amendments to the soil.  Turn these materials into the top 6 to 12 inches of soil.  You do not need to finely till the soil or rake the garden smooth. The freezing and thawing that occurs over winter will help break down large clods and settle the soil.  In spring give your garden a light cultivation and you will be ready to plant. Avoid fall cultivation of gardens on slopes or other locations where soil erosion may be a problem.  Work these areas just prior to planting.
