Preparing Garden Beds for Over-wintering
http://www.durgan.org/ShortURL/?OMLUB 28 September 2008. Preparing Garden Beds for Over-wintering

I cleared most of my own compost bins, and spread on various beds throughout the yard. Sometimes I have cleared the compost bins in the Spring, but it is often frozen when the time comes, and spreading must be delayed, hence doing it in the Fall. Also, fall season spreading gives the compost some time to filter into the bed.

Here we tend to grow vegies on during the winter. It seems strange telling you that, because in Victoria the main growing season is Spring through to the end of Autumn, and we envy those in Northern NSW and Queensland, who can grow tomatoes and pumpkins through the winter months. I find it hard to rest a bed, but made a point this year of sowing a large veg bed to green manure. It is ready to be turned in now.
Spreading compost? I suppose I do that all year, as the need arises, but most of it happens in the dead of winter, in prep for Spring plantings.
VIvia la difference!
Cheers, Jan
