To start with, I am completely new at growing anything.
So, after doing some research, this year I decided to start slow and only grown a few types plants.

They are green beans, cucumbers, bell peppers.
I also planted two 'tabasco' peppers (1 foot tall) plants I had in some pots.

After a few attempts I got seedlings with the first true leaves showing, acclimated them a few days in the sun during the day. Then planted them in a 50/50 mix of native dirt and compost.

They were all growing perfectly until I found most of them had been cut down.
It looked like something small had just chewed right through the little stalks.

Also one of the 'tabasco' pepper plants had the top half cut off.

Any ideas?

Any ideas?
