if i mulch in my garden with hay,when fall comes do i rake it up into a pile and re use it in the spring...or do i till it in..or something else? i am not sure what to do with it in the fall when the garden is finished.

You can just leave it lay all winter then if you wish till it in. as it breaks down and turns to dirt it will add nitrogen and other goodies to the garden:)
I leave my hay just lay there and by spring it is close to being dirt.
