What a cute zucchini kid!

Patricia if I had ambition I would try to build a greenhouse like yours.  It would provide lots of added gardening options.

Patricia, why is your garden "fried"?  Too much heat and not enough water?

Box gardening without boxes

Here is an interesting way to plot out a garden without building boxes. Water could be supplied to each area, the soil prepared with Lasagna method of soil preparation:

Each year is different for snow. We've even had several green Decembers, which used to be unheard of! We can get very mild winters, to very cold winters, but our temps don't go as low as they did 30-40 years ago. We get years with 6 or 8 feet of snow, to almost nothing at times. Thankfully it's dry so clearing isn't too bad & my husband finally invested in a blower when I got after him for shoveling by hand. With his bad heart he shouldn't be doing it & I can only do so much myself. Even the neighbors, who seem to have ''adopted'' us, help out & give him ''what for'' if he does something he shouldn't....it's hilarious!

Patricia, this wonderful structure is exactly what I would like! It looks relatively simple to construct and, if proper engineered, would last for a long time. You obviously put it to good use. 

Your place in British Columbia is just about the same elevation as Spokane, only farther north. Do you have heavy snows? 

Just read the Farmer's Almanac saying we are going to have a cold winter.

The greenhouse with the (fried) garden in front of it....behind the BBQ.
