I have a garden that is 1 quarter the size of a football field.
Our problem is how to control weeds that are very tenascious
and unrelenting while maintaining our organic stature.The
soil is fantastic,lot's of sun which I am happy with but no matter how often I take the hoe in hand the weeds overcome my garden to the point you can barely step anywhere without coming across a weed.We need this size garden to provide veggies for more than one family.As much as I love gardening I must admit this has put a major damper on my enthusiasm for veggie gardening.Thank you for any help you can be able to give me.You may also be saving my sanity :).

on a tighter spacing also crowds out weeds by acting as a groundcover of sorts.

I hope this gives you some ideas. You should also be heartened by the thought that the first year is the worst for weeds, each succeeding year after that should be easier.
