Gardening questions

Joie and I have decided to begin a garden. This is my 1st real attempt at gardening and I really don't have a clue as to how to prepare the soil. I walking the grounds to determine the spot for garden when I noticed a lot of critters in the ground. Exactly what these bugs are is undetermined but they do not look like grubs. Will these critters affect the garden? If so, what can be done?

Can I still get the soil prepared for this year? Several flowers have popped up this year across the yard that had been planted by previous owners. While the local hardware store clerk was trying sell me products I don't need and telling me that I won't have a garden because the critters would kill anything that tried to grow (except said flowers apparently) I wondered why previous annuals can survive but a vegetable garden will not? Do I need to treat the ground for bugs?

Should I add ash to the garden site? Does adding ash make a big difference is the garden? Is there a difference between charcoal ash and wood ash from a fire pit?

After preparing the soil how long before I plant vegetables? I am only trying tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, and strawberries (maybe) this year.

What say you, Planeteers? Do I have a chance to garden this year?
