      Hi,

      You might want to look into the Latin American system of frijol tapado. They let a patch go wild until woody weeds start to dominate. Then they hack those down chop-and-drop style and sew beans in the mulch. The beans then have an advantage as the dominant weeds are slower woody ones. Apparently, a large percentage of Costa Rica's beans get grown this way. You might try it out and trow in corn and squash into the mix and see if it works.
