My failed garden

I was so excited to attempt a garden this year. I started seedlings with the kids in February and went on to plant them in March. I finally talked my husband into giving me some room in our raised planter for the garden. We made nice rows with labels and everything. But...All of my seedlings have shriveled up and disappeared. Definitely bummed! I guess I will give it another go either by planting the seeds directly in the ground or I'll buy some plants at the store and see how they do. I never said I had a green thumb, but I still wanted to try. I remember growing strawberries and tomatoes as a kid. Yum. Hopefully I'll have better news in this area in the future.

Here's a picture of my nice, neat rows 10 days ago:
