All 5 yards leafs are spread on the garden or on a compost pile in the fall and turned over in the spring. Been doing this on a 30 by 50 garden since 1959. Staten island is the red brick clay that we have on the north shore or sand on most of the south shore. The soil is now nice rich black loam.
Tomato vines and squash plants are thrown out. Tomato, Eggplant and pepper are related so we plant them in a different spot on a 3 year rotation because the asparagus is in the same spot since before I retired in 1985 and still producing very well.
