Right now would be an ideal time for cleaning up. This means weeding and pulling up or cutting many plants. Dividing overgrown plants can also be performed during fall. Planting spring bulbs is done now too. You may also want to take this time to protect the garden from winter temps, etc. by adding mulch. Fall can also be a time to prepare next season's garden by planning your designs. As for soil, amending the soil is normally done in spring but go ahead and throw some compost on it now and then mix it into the soil once spring arrives.
