Avoid Plant Disease

Avoid Plant Disease

If you've harvested the last of your vegetables, it's time to get the garden ready for the winter. It might be tempting to just walk away and deal with the garden next spring, but a little work now will result in a healthy, productive garden next year. Cucumber vines, squash vines, and the dried remains of tomato and bean plants are most likely to harbor plant disease. If you allow this disease-carrying residue to remain on the soil's surface, there is a good chance the organisms will like through the winter and infect your new plants in the spring.
