I would use a grass and weed killer if you do not want to use chemicals smothering the weeds with newspaper will also work but takes longer. The newspaper will have to be left in place several seasons. To plant vegetable slits can be made in the newspaper. Several methods are described in the articles listed above. Be sure to pick the sunniest spot in your yard for the best results.
