How hard could it be to start a garden? From my experience, so easy that I blew it.
If you can not get a seed to germinate and sprout you should probably not be allowed to have children. Even with very little attention, after about a month leaves were popping up out of the ground all over the box and that was the begining of the problems.
I planted entirely too many seeds in these boxes. I created a space where only the strong could survive.
The items that did grow, quickly overgrew the boxes. Squash, cucumbers, green beans and watermelon are quite resilient.
While all I got was a bit of green beans, tomatoes, cucumbers and and squash, I feel as though I understand where I went wrong I am optimistic a about the 2021 growing season.
