Well, you'd certainly need to give us a LOT more information before we could tell you what's happening in your garden.

Absent information, about the only thing that can be recommended is to guard against cutworms by placing collars around vulnerable plants to prevent insect damage from those that live in the soil, and cover your rows with row-covers to prevent damage from birds or deer or rabbits or other critters that like tender young green things.
