Putting the Garden to Bed
If you think you are interested at trying your hand at a small (or large) vegetable garden in the spring, it's not too early to think about preparing the soil. Grab some of those leaves that are laying all over your lawn and pile them high on the area you want your garden. It doesn't matter if the soil is tilled or not. The leaves provide lots of nutrients as they decompose during the winter months. If you decide not to have a garden in the spring, no harm done. You'll have really green grass in that area in the spring.
