You can stack the turves in a neat pile in a corner placing roots to roots and grass to grass in layers. It will rot down to make wonderful soil for your new veg beds.
For the clay soil, break it up with a fork if you can then layer on loads of well rotted farmyard manure and leave it over winter so that the elements and worms can break it all down and mix them up. Fork it over in spring and rake before layering on some of your compost and planting plugs rather than sowing seeds as they'll cope better.
Keep mulching with more compost and manure every autumn and you'll ned up with healthy, fertile soil.
