I'd spread it over the garden now and fork it in in the spring. Hopefully we'll get some sharp frosts this winter to kill the bugs and blights.
Blight spores travel on the air, so what little there is in the soil will be negligible compared to what's in the air next year. Keep plants well apart to allow air to flow through rather than stagnate around them.
By the way, your beans won't have had the same condition as the potatoes and tomatoes.
