The best ways to control weeds in a vegetable garden are to hoe them off short, then cover them with several layers of damp newspaper topped with several inches of organic mulch. This will not only smother most weeds but will also help conserve moisture to reduce watering needs and also help feed the soil slowly as it breaks down over time. Good luck with your vegetable garden this summer!
