Good morning to all and a rainy one in Calgary it is!  So I am cleaning
out closets!!

This fall as soon as I have harvested all my veggies I am going to take
down my raised beds on the south side of the house.  I plan on taking
all the beds down then adding compost and leaves and rototilling the
heck out of it - get a real good fluffly mix.  My question is this: 
Should I build my new beds this fall after I have rototilled or should I
wait until spring?  The beds are located on the south side and it is
quite dry on that side of the house.
