I have a green pepper plant that I grew from seed. It recently flowered and the peppers were jsut starting to come out. I came out this morning and they are gone. There are no chew marks on any of the leaves or anywhere else. There was no remnants left over on the soil or ground. I had sprayed them with insectiside. What could have happnened to them? My friend said it was probably a squirrel. Is this possible?

I don't see why not or some kind of other animal.

Sounds like you were hit by the dreaded "two-legged" animal...

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
