It's time to put the beds to sleep for the winter and feed the worms.

To prep the beds, pull the veggie plants up by the roots and remove the sticks.

Then spread leaves at no less than one bag per 9 square feet. Use no walnut or doggy pooped leaves. This is what 40 bags look like. I always save about this many for late summer as the rest of the 300 bags have generally turned into worm poop by then. Be aware leaves need a minimum of 6 months decomposing before roots can use the nutrients.
