Ending Season – Planning for next

Ending Season – Planning for next

Growing season for me is over. And to be honest, I'm looking forward to hanging-up my gloves for awhile. After a back injury I haven't been able to do near as much as I've wanted to. My vegetable garden reflects all the neglect; it's an eyesore. My question is about planning for next year's garden. What do you do to prepare your garden beds for next years harvest? According to my neighbor, a nice layer of dead leaves will make for better soil next year. Makes sense to me, any other ideas? I'm an organic gardener now and would love any advice on how to improve for next season. Thanks ahead of time :)
