Hiya. Michael. Picture didn't load for me.
However, I share your enthusiasm and satisfaction in clearing your garden. Something most of us have had to do too.
I get the impression you have a good idea of what to do.......? Getting plenty of compost, manure, mushroom compost etc into your veg plot is the most important thing now. Digging quite deeply and trenching in all this goodness. I'm a devotee of no-digging......apart from a runner bean trench all my compost is spread over the soil.....but you need to dig it initially. A PH test is very important. Veg generally need neutral to alkaline soil. If you have acid soil mushroom compost will be useful to correct this.
Thought of fruit? Gooseberries, blackcurrants, rhubarb etc. would fit in well in veg patch...? Wish you well. Nothing like eating your own fresh carrots, peas, beans, lettuce, onions, Beetroot etc.
