Q.I Have An Annual Vegetable Garden But Will Not Be Planting Next Year. Do I Need To Do Anything To The Ground While Fallow?
I usually plant a large vegetable and fruit garden each year but because of a planned very busy summer schedule next year I will not have the time to tend to it. If I leave the ground fallow for a year, are there any steps I should take to keep it plantable and help it to not become completely over run with weeds?

I would DEFINITELY recommend solarizing it for a few months.
After this is done, I would recommend amending the soil with compost to give it a little boost before time to plant.
