The best time to rototill

Question
Is it best to rototill in the Fall, Spring or Both?

Answer
I like to rototill both in the Fall and Spring. In the Fall we are working in any organic material left on the garden into the soil to break down over the winter.  This will also let the Winter water soak in to the soil a little deeper.  Be careful not to work the soil to much as this will destroy the soil structure.  Usually in the Fall, I go over the garden just once with the tiller. In the Spring I make two passes in working the soil for planting.
