So this year I started two 4'x 6' (~1.2m x 1.8m) raised garden beds and am growing lots of vegetables there as well as in a handful of containers.
My question is what are the things I should do to prepare for next Spring /next full growing season. I'm in zone 5 - southern Ontario.
Should I be saving the dead plants (once I remove them). Starting a compost pile? Saving yard trimmings or raked leaves? Do I put anything over/on/in the beds once the first frost comes? What are your pro-tips and tricks?
