Plan it all out (draw on paper) and tackle one small section at a time and do that small section well, is my advice. That way you can see progress and not become disheartened, which can easily happen when weeds start growing back etc. Personally, I would prepare the veg area first by digging it over and removing every bit of root you find. Then mulch it with a good few inches of well-rotted farmyard manure (you can buy this bagged from garden centres these days, if you can't find any advertised in your local newspaper etc.) As you want that at the far end, doing the hard work and carrying now will save you trampling over areas which you have already renovated. After that I'd get the path in, which will help define the rest of the garden. Curvy paths always work best in my experience in rectangular gardens.
