I am starting a new garden plot and it seems that no matter how I do it, I am battling weeds, mainly grass all season long. What can I do?

A nice thick mulch will help suppress weeds, or you might consider pulling the existing weeds and then covering the entire garden area with weed blocking fabric. You can cut holes or slits in the weed block to plant your plants. The important thing is to block sunlight which will keep weed seeds from sprouting. Best wishes with your garden!
