Looks like you've got your work cut out, Amy. Get digging!
The moss indicates that the soil is damp, poor in nutrients and shaded, otherwise weeds would have grown there. Mosy crops will cope with some shade - although tomatoes and other Mediterranean-type plants do far better with full sun. Lettuce actually does better in partial shade, in high summer at least, and most soft fruit (sadly not strawberries, which do beter in full sun) being originally woodland plants, will also be fine with some shade.
Get it cleared, get a load of well rotted manure into it (athough not where you're going to put the carrots) and get the seeds in asap!
