    Welcome to the vine Amy.
    Loads of helpful advice and lovely peeps on here.

    And when your back stops aching,
    And your hands begin to harden.
    You will find yourself a partner,
    In the glory of the garden.

    Welcome from me as well. I'd be inclined not to cover in plastic but make a pest of yourself in the local cycling shops and mooch the boxes their cycles come in. They will keep light out and thus suppress weeds and will absorb moisture which will end up in the ground if you dig the cardboard down in the springtime by which time it will have degraded

    This would be a good time to plant overwintering onions if you want to get some dirt under your fingernails
