I planted 10 jalapeno plants in a flower bed in front of our coop a few weeks ago and they have started to grow peppers. So exciting! I've been letting the chickens out of the run when I'm working outside in the afternoons and they haven't even noticed the plants...today I walked in the house for 5 minutes, came back out, pepper plants are gone!! I have green stems sticking out of the groundI'm so mad. No more free ranging for them. turds.
