Howdy Ruben. Where are you located? First thing I see is that you need to start building that soil. Lots of good organics, compost etc. This will help hold water in and add food for the plants. Do you have neighbors who throw away leaves or grass clippings? ( especially if they do not use chemicals to keep weeds down , which is hard to find. If they spray their lawns those chemicals will end up in your garden and could kill your plants. )

Congratulations on beginning the journey! I live in the high desert with hot summers and low rainfall. From my experience, the type of raised bed you built can be challenging in terms of water needs and plant vigor if you are doing hose/bucket watering. If you don't already have a set-up, consider drip-irrigation, soaked hose, junk pit/olla, or wicking bed. It's often simpler to dig down instead of build up for arid climate gardening as the plants get a bit more shade, some wind protection, and better soil moisture regulating. As for full-sun... in my area "full sun" plants often do best with a bit of shade (shade-cloth, loosely spaced tall plants like sunflower).
In the desert you want to plant in depressions/holes not in raised bed because all your water will drain/evaporate away quickly.
I know that muscadine grapes like zone 9 not too sure about regular grapes, but if other get a good crop from what you have plated go for it.
Plant lots of herbs from the mint family they like the desert ( mint, thyme, lavender, oregano, rosemary, sage, savory, etc).
Almonds and apricots, palms (dates, jelly palms, etc), jujube, figs, olives, gooseberry, pomegranate, mulberry, pineapple guava.
Iterations are fine, we don't have to be perfect
