my seedlings are one my one falling, even those that contain already
several leaves. I have discovered that just above the soil there is
hard yellow_white part, which can be scratched off. I have the impression
that this hard part is causing the plants to just fall aside.
In DeWitt & Bosland's "The Pepper Garden" I can only find one disease which
matches the observed symptoms and that is that they are attacked by cutworms.
Is there any other possibility? 


According to Horrowitz, there are three types of pianists: homosexual, jewish
and bad pianists. Do I have to worry?
