Hello,
I came up with a new garden bed design, this is based off a bed design I have been evolving last couple years which was successful beyond what straight lined bed would provide, also as easy to water as a linear bed. I designed this primarily for a 12x20 greenhouse, I have an old garden I am working on, but I am new to it. My idea is that since I have a Mobile greenhouse, i will dig out this path design, fill it with greenmanure on the path, and when it gets warmer I will move the greenhouse forward, starting over again (takes 20 minutes to dig and seed).

Known benefits: stationary pivot in the divot for easier access to more picking at once, 5ft total sized beds instead of 3-4, hold more water and staggers/slows water retreat.
