Dave's Garden has a good overview article on tasks to do now to prepare for next spring. This article was published in 2017, but it is still timely.

I liked that the article mentioned making any repairs when the beds are cleaned.

I have a few driplines that have clogged and need to be replaced, not to mention the last table top bed that needs a new bottom.  Sad

Whatever one can get done before winter, will pay off in the spring.  Boy, have I learned that lesson these past 2 years.  You never know what life can throw you over winter.  Shocked  

Clean up the beds.  Add compost and cover with bedding straw, dry leaves, dry pine needles, or my new favorite, E-Z Straw with Tack from Tractor Supply.  Come spring, pull back or remove mulch to warm up the soil.  Very Happy

Ain't that the truth!  The last week of this past April I ended up in the hospital for surgery, with a 6 weeks recovery time. Our last frost in May 15th, and I hadn't even started getting the beds ready for planting.
