Keep a bale of straw or something handy and when they want to weed, teach them to mulch instead and give them a lecture on the benefits of mulching as they're doing it. If they're showing an interest, it's best to harness it rather than fight it.

If you are on the Oregon Coast and don't keep your orchard mowed (eaten down by goats, or something!), I think you'll find it overrun with blackberries in a few years. Now, blackberries are not necessarily a bad thing (very tasty, and the vines are good feed for goats), but believe it or not, they can over top and kill your fruit trees. I've seen it happen (was partly raised on the Oregon Coast -- my family is from near Florence). So you might want to keep an eye out, at least, for blackberry vines starting to move in.
