This is what is left to harvest of the squash and pumpkins the day before the frost. I had planted 2 acorn squash, 2 butternut squash, 6 orange pumpkins and 2 white pumpkins. No weeds!
And it will remain weed free.
I planted my first tomato plant in northwest Illinois in 1947 and have been gardening ever since. My house is on a 2.3 acre lot and have 3 garden plots totaling 10,000 square feet. All vegetable. No flowers. No weeds.
