Those bastard weeds... and how to get rid of pests without poisoning yourself

I spent a good two hours weeding this morning. People often boast that they will one day have a rock garden in their yard, but it seem that this is more maintenance than a regular garden, and putting down plastic mesh all over the ground seems to be as wrong as having an astro turf lawn (except in Colorado). 
  
I found a decent article on good weeding practices here: http://www.yougrowgirl.com/garden/gardenofweedin.php
 
On the same site I also found recipes for organic insecticides you can make in your kitchen. I will probably try the orange spray this week as I've been noticing that something is eating my mustard greens.
