What the heck did THIS??!!
Drama. Something killed about 20 of my plants in three days... See picture below - all the leaves were clipped off (not eaten) and the trunk is chopped off.
Potential culprits that we have in the area: rabbit, skunk, groundhog, bird, insect...?
Other weird fact: nothing else in the garden was attacked - we have lettuce, carrots, beans, peas, herbs, tomatoes. Just the peppers.
Trying to fence the area as best I can but would help to know what this might be.
