Cabral , hello , yes on right track 

Would suggest you leave paths to walk on rather than what you have just dug

I use green manure but only on some beds as I have found it not that easy to dig in , I also put new horse manure on top of the beds for the winter then dig it in

i also use shredded stuff to cover beds and creatre paths but we get it delivered free to our A site 

best advice is a bit at a time , have you got a shed ? A little patio area as must so you can sit , drink and admire what you have done or in my case a little rest 

I have found this a great site for practical ideas and advice 

happy allottmenteering
