I have a lot of weeds in my garden now. Do I have to remove them before I till the soil, or can I till them into the soil?

You can till the weeds with the soil, but you may want to cover the garden area afterward. One of the best ways to keep the garden weed free is to place some type of weed barrier, such as plastic or fabric sheeting, over the area. This will help smother any remaining weed seeds and can be removed in spring just prior to planting.
