    I have a small fenced in backyard, way in the back corner is here our familys veggie garden is. My kids have planted their pumpkins , watermelons and birdhouse gourds there too. Anyways my three scvies have free run of the yard as well for a week. Nothing got nipped on , so i thought everything isgood. Well last afternoon we had thunderstorms rolling through and the ducks went fown to the vegies to what i thought eating all the worms coming out and other critters..HAH!!!!!
    This morning i go down there to clip the duds(blooms without any fruits on them) of my kids plants ,wasnt paying much attention. Go look at my maters they are fine too. Take a look at my peppers. Which peppers , where are they? All that was left are some stumps and five tiny jalapenos on one bush. They ate all the leaves. They tried the eggplant, but apperantly it isnt tasty enough. [​IMG]
    So i hope it isnt too late to buy new plants allover again and fence them in .
    Is it too late for planting peppers in NE Ohio?
