Hi, Lurker here, been a member for a long time but haven't gardened for a while so haven't posted. Now I have converted a large flower bed to a small garden. This was the first year and while it wasn't a complete success I'm going to try again next year. I mulched with newspaper topped with straw to keep down the weeds and it was great. I didn't have the time to weed so this was a lifesaver for me.
Now to the question! I know I shouldn't leave the mulch on the garden all winter because of overwintering bugs but don't have a place to compost so would like to till the mulch in to help enrich the soil, but when would be the best time to do it? I haven't even had a light frost yet and I'm afraid if I till now the weeds would start growing again. Should I wait till the first frost or till a killing frost? Help please and TIA!
