This is the type of situation where an ounce of prevention is worth several pounds of effort. It's easier to keep weeds and grasses out of the garden than to get them out once they've established themselves. The safest treatment is to dig the weeds and grass out. Then cover the bare soil with an organic mulch - something you can turn into the soil later in the year, to help enrich the soil. Next time you plant your garden, add 3-4 inches of mulch around the plants. Mulch will help the soil retain moisture, and will help to suppress weeds.
