I would cover with something permeable like weed fabric. It should help keep weedy seeds out but allow water in. If there is a big rain for any length of time, you could add a tarp. What say others?

My winter climate is probably similar to your's BB94. I do NOT cover my SFG beds but maybe they would do better the following summer if I did cover them for the winter. I don't get a lot of weeds and the ones I do get are easy to pull out. I do put a thick layer of straw over the garlic and strawberry squares.

Yup that and more is what I get for snow. Good thing we get some melt during the winter or it would be 14 feet deep.  Very Happy
