The safest way is to hand pull the weeds but you can also smother them with cardboard or several thicknesses of newspaper placed on the soil between the plants. After laying cardboard or newspaper you can top it off with an organic mulch material such as straw or compost. At the end of the season dig everything into the soil and lay fresh new mulch over the garden to suppress weeds. Next spring when you have finished planting, use a thick layer of mulch between the plants to suppress new weeds. Good luck with your garden!
