Ready the beds for winter

The growing season has definitely ended.  I am still harvesting the last of my tomatoes, some of which will become fried green tomatoes.  I have, however finished the cherry tomatoes and have gotten that bed prepared for the winter.  After pulling up the plants, I like to turn over the soil.  Be sure to pull out any root clusters so that the soil is easily loosed. I then top the bed with a good layer of compost.  This helps to replenish any nutrients that have been stripped from the soil.  Rake it out a bit and say so long until next spring!
