I am glad that I wrote down "start" a garden and not keep a garden alive and thriving. I did exactly what said I was going to do and I started a garden. Then I moved into a new apartment and essentially abandoned my little plants entirely.
Everything started out great. I'm not sure where I got the seeds or the soil but I went though all of the effort of perfectly placing them, adding the right amount of water, and put them in an area where they would get just enough, but not too much light.
Then I moved away and asked my family to take care of them. I think they forgot.
This was after a month or so when I remembered to check in on them.
Like I said, I'm glad this goal was to "start a garden" because I certainly did that. I think my gardening days are over until I'm done with apartment living but at least I know I have a lot of room to grow!
