First - dig in.
Clear all the debris you can see on top, removing spent plants and any leaves that might have blown in when fall came our way.
Now is a good time to get an assessment of your soil done, too. Contact your local Cooperative Extension office for further instructions on how to get your soil tested for FREE.Ideally now is the time to do this, because when spring arrives, the offices will be very busy and your results will take longer to come back.Whether you intend to plant some early cool crops or wait to plant the main summer crops, the results of your soil test will determine what it may need if anything.

Whatever lofty things you might accomplish today, you will do them only because you first ate something that grew out of dirt.
