Vanishing pepper plants
I had five pepper plants in a raised bed. Carolina Wonder and Charleston Belle. I made special orders for nematode resistant seeds and started them inside. I actually tried to start 8, but only 5 made it.
One by one they have been disappearing out of my raised bed. The first couple of times I shrugged it off.
Last night my biggest plant vanished. It was about 2' tall and had many small peppers on it. I could cry. I have only two plants left.
There is no hole. No evidence of digging. There is no dead plant or leaves left behind. The whole plants are just GONE.
My Romanesco broccoli plants in the same bed vanished in a similar manner a couple of weeks ago.
What is going on here?
