Gg. Sorry to read you've had a letter. I struggled last year due to ill health and still have problems with my back...to cut to the chase...I tried a few things to keep weeds down, planted ground cover, planted perennial veg/fruit and put in paths.
Don't rush into planting stuff into newly dug over ground, leave it for a week or two to allow any weed seeds in it to germinate. You can hoe these just before planting veg giving the veg a better chance.
Keep a hoe sharp, I spend at least 10-15mins hoeing beds of newly planted stuff.
We've a leak so water won't be turned on until it's been repaired.
