Christopher Wong of Young Urban Farmers youngurbanfarmers.com demonstrates 4 easy steps to prepare your garden for winter. They include:
- Remove dead plants, branches, stems and leaves and put into a composter
- Water your garden thoroughly so it isn’t too dry before the harsh winter weather
- Mulch perennial plants to give extra winter root protection
- Plant a cover crop like winter rye, clover or buckwheat, make sure to plow it under before it gets to large or alternatively, you can turn over the soil to make spring planting easier.
