Yes you can grow all those things there. Moisten the soil so it is easier to work and then repeatedly mix in as many leaves as you can. Adding several inches of compost is even better. In a season or two of adding lots of organic matter your soil will become much better suited to plant growth.
Also contact your County Extension Office and ask for the Horticulture Agent:
