After a walk through the garden tonight, I was just about ready to leave when something out of place caught my eye. “What in the Sam Hill…?”, I thought to myself. (Now that I type that, what a strange saying… side note, here is a wikipedia page on it.) Anyway, back to the mystery. I notice what looks like a green pepper over by the tomatoes. Surely that isn’t a pepper, that is a whole garden bed over. As I maneuver back around my overgrown garden I get closer and sure enough, it is a sweet pepper. After checking the pepper plants, it is one of the red peppers I have been waiting (forever it seems like) for it to turn red. How in the world did a legless pepper get all they way over there? Below is a picture of what I originally noticed.
For a better look at the distance the pepper traveled, take a look at the following video.
At this point… my best guess is a squirrel decided to try and make off with it and either gave up or got spooked and ran off leaving its prized pepper. Anyone have any other thoughts?
