Can I place pine needles in existing garden and plow them into soil now? And will they be ready for next spring’s garden?

Pine needles make your soil more acidic - knowing if your soil is acidic or alkaline will determine use. I add "stuff" to my soil and if it does not break down completely by Spring, it does provide texture. It will break down eventually but do consider the PH factor.
