Red Bell Pepper


By Aleyna

Red Bell Pepper (Capsicum annuum (Sweet pepper))

I bought these cuttings of red bell pepper and planted them in late February. They are bearing fruit, but unfortunately some bird or insect is sharing the leaves and fruit with me. The leaves have holes and the two fruits that started to turn red have been punctured. I've already added smoke broth to try to contain the pest, but I haven't had much success.

That's such a shame have you tried looking in the soil.

Hummm, no. But as soon as this rain stops I will turn the soil to look for some larva
