I used leaves on my soil over the winter and have tilled them in. It seems a bit too much now. What should I add now for the best results in my vegetable garden?

The leaves will continue to decompose and add nutrients to the soil so you shouldn't have to add anything else before you plant. A 4-5-inch layer of leaves over the garden should have decomposed over the winter months and when you tilled it (8-10" deep) into the soil, will be at the perfect level for the roots of your plants to benefit from the nutrients. Just level the area and plant. Hope you have a bumper crop!
