Retract the measuring tape and repeat the process for each of the other three sides, being sure to mark each corner.
Check your work by measuring each side again and multiplying the length times the width to make sure that you still come up with at least 50. Camp Solomon Schechter applied for a Gendler Grapevine Project grant with the goal of expanding its Teva Learning Center (TLC) activities by providing a solid, sustainable, organic agricultural curriculum. The TLC includes an organic, sustainable garden located in a 2,000 square foot garden area, which contains at least 24 growing beds, an area for fruit trees and berry bushes, a small green house, a tool shed, and a compost bin. All of this happened in conjunction with the curriculum that was developed by the Environmental Educator, who did a great job of incorporating the Torah values into each and every lesson plan.

Home Improvement Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for contractors and serious DIYers. I have built some of the "arches" for a gambrel roof, I know support is needed so the roof doesn't collapse.
I would like to avoid having to have support run on the inside so it's a cleaner geometry inside. Trying to brace the roof from the outside as you illustrated will not add any significant structural reinforcement. In order to analyze the tension and compression in each truss member, the standard practice is to assume the joints do not support any torque loading (aka moment in engineering terms).
In this case I only solved for the tension in member CI, which is what you're interested in eliminating. DISCLAIMER: I'm not giving you professional engineering advice, I'm just trying to help you understand how truss structures work so you can make an informed decision yourself.

If you want to look more into the methods I used, a Google search for 'statics truss examples (PDF)' may be the best place to get started.
EDIT: I was at Home Depot last night, and noticed they had several pre-built sheds with gambrel-style roofs. I am not sure how much roof space you have but a simple solution which would help would be to place a beam between the two lower legs of your roof.

Camp Solomon Schechter completed this project by securing support from four different funding sources (including the Gendler Grapevine Project).
The campers, staff and volunteers were introduced to the TLC soon after they arrived at camp.
Is it reasonable to run twin metal straps around the roofing diagonally on the outside for support so the roof is pulled together? Without the metal bands, the front and back walls carry the brunt of the lateral load that the roof places on the side walls. The reason is easier to understand when you examine how the different members in a truss work together to support a load. Since this loading is symmetrical, it can be assumed that the vertical reactions are equal.
I looked inside, and most of them simply had plywood gussets holding the truss members together, with no cross-beams.
I was thinking of revising my answer to suggest including the external frame plus a member from A to E and E to J, then a horizontal tension member somewhere in between connecting the two.

Horizontally and level with say your "cross" drawn with your blue lines, tying the two sides together and stopping it from "splaying" outwards.
To ensure that the targeted space for such a shed is adequate, a quick and simple calculation using only a tape measure is all that is required.
Seeing the lush and vibrant garden was enough to get them excited and talking about the program.
Adding straps that encircle the exterior will primarily reinforce the ends, and do little towards stabilizing the rest of the side walls.
The top members of a truss supporting a vertical load are generally in compression, with the bottom in tension. For the beginner, I always recommend arbitrarily assigning each member in tension, and if it solves to a negative value, that means it's actually in compression. So if you calculated the total weight of your roof material, you should be able to get a rough estimate of how much lateral force is going to be on the walls.
Although, the larger ones usually only had half of the roof built this way, with a loft to stabilize the roof at the rear half.
Without the bottom members pulling your truss back together, the walls of your structure will be forced outward. THEN you could work out a beam bending equation for the top plate running along each side wall, and figure out if it can sustain that lateral load.
Campers helped tend the garden, release ladybugs, install an Israeli drip irrigation system, and cook food from the garden to share at meals. Try to find one the same dimensions as yours, and pay very close attention to how it's constructed.
I'd even take a tape measure, sketch pad, and camera along and pretty much copy the design.
In other words constructive critique is welcome, destructive mean-spirited judgements are not permitted.

    And men face right now I can inform that you would within the ground and support.

    Forwards to check the lateral stability of the bar years.

    That I mean, you could also put up these floating.
