You can smother the weeds before you plant your veggies and mulch between the plants to keep weeds from popping up. Use several thicknesses of newspaper or heavy cardboard to smother the weeds. Or, you can cover the entire garden bed with weed blocker fabric and cut slits or X's to plant your veggies. Or, you can use the organic herbicide Concern? Fast Acting Weed Killer. It kills on contact but is safe to use in vegetable gardens if you target the weeds and not the veggies.
