QUESTION: I have several vegetable boxes that are now cleaned up from the summer veggies we grew - mainly tomatoes. Being a relative greenhorn in terms of vegetable gardening I was wondering what, if any, tips you have with regard to winter protection for the soil. This year despite new soil and fertilizer being added at the beginning of the growing season, the outcome was not quite as good as the previous year. I am wonder if I could do to protect and improve the soil. Should I feed the soil some type fertilizer or just wait till spring. Should I cover the boxes? Appreciate any advice you may offer. Michael
