Wood expanding when wet

You must have room for expansion between the individual boards & the boards must never be glued to the frame they will always expand & contract with the weather no amount of varnish will prevent movement. In the winter things will be even worse, best start again.

I grew Black Opal last year, the leaves curled & darkened but there was a good crop, but they took ages to ripen & where very bland tasting, won't be growing it again.

It depends on the size of the pond & the type of fish, it's possible to keep goldfish without a filter but only if you keep a few in a reasonably sized pond, Do not consider Koi unless you are looking at a pond at least 4' deep & 1000 gallons plus.
