Hi everyone.. I have 3 bell pepper plants, for a few months now, and not only do the peppers stay tiny for some reason, but now that one finally grew to a good size, I noticed that something ate it. GRRR.. It ate half of it, I should say. After closer inspection, I noticed 2 large caterpillar-like creatures on my poor pepper plants. They're green and have 1 red thorn-like spike on their backs. I'm not gardener numero uno, and I'm certainly not an expert in any way, so I'm really uncertain about what to do. Any way to get rid of them and save my pepper plants? I usually don't have too many veggie plants, more flower, particularly roses, so this is pretty foreign to me. Thanks for your help!
