The Disappearing Pepper

Mr. Flower had an extra Sweet Banana Pepper plant.

He gave it to me to pop into one of my beds.

It was rather small, so I potted it up.

I wanted it to get bigger before putting it out in the real world.

I walked by its pot on the steps numerous times each day.

Yesterday, I looked down to see a barren green stem in the pot.


At first I suspected the little bunny that has been munching on my hostas.

Then I saw them,


The caterpillar poop/frass.

They looked like tiny grenades scattered around the base of the stark stem.

Another donation to nature! Poor little pepper plant.
