What to do to my garden for fall and winter?
My vegetable garden is coming to an end. I am still waiting on some carrots but otherwise everything else is done producing. This was my first garden and now I have no idea what to do to prepare the garden for fall and winter. I have read of planting rye grass but not sure if that is a good idea or not or even a good idea for where I live. I plan to pull out all the plants and put that in my compost pile. I do not have any compost ready and my store bought stuff is gone. Not sure I can still buy any. Does it matter if I add compost in the fall or if I wait until spring? Do I need to plant anything in the garden for winter or can I just till it and leave it alone? Thanks for any help.
