Answer: The answer to your questions depends on why you are rototilling. If you are trying to work in a large amount of organic matter or other long lasting soil amendments, then yes this is a good time. It will also save you time and perhaps allow you to plant earlier next spring. On the other hand, if you are simply hoping to prepare a seedbed, you would be better off waiting until spring because the winter heaving and thawing will undo your work. This is a great time to run the basic soil tests and find out which amendments (if any) you need to add in any case. Your County Extension (736-3394) should be able to help you with the tests and interpreting the results.
