Overall my garden has done well this year. Tomatoes and cherry tomatoes are doing well. We have gotten a great green bean crop. Dug the first hill of potatoes the other day and they were great.....The peppers on the other hand...I can't figure out what is going on with them. They have looked like this the whole summer. Holes in leaves, leaves fall off the plant (at the stem), the plants develop flowers but they fall off before fruit develops. Now I am seeing a raised squiggly line along the center vein of the bell pepper plants. I live in central Iowa and we have had well above-average rain this summer, however the water has not affected the rest of the garden. My garden is 2x6 boxes so that helps with drainage.
Thanks for any suggestions! Hopefully I can salvage something out of these, I was really looking forward to a crop of peppers.
Jalapeno plant. I have gotten a few peppers off 2/4 plants. The rest have no fruit. Overall, the Jalapeno's look better than the Bells or the Pablano's.
You can see one jalapeno on the plant in the background.
Bell pepper plant. See the raised squiggly center vein and rough edges on the leaves?
