Post Pepper plants, lower leaves burried from rain 
I have my pepper plants all nicely planted in little holes (not too deep) but we had a really really heavy rain and it caused the soil from around the garden to slightly fill the hole causing the lower leaves to be buried. The plants are still only about 12 inches or so and beginning to flower. But how concerned should I be? Should I make sure that every leaf is uncovered or is this not a problem?
The weather/seasons certainly don't seem the same as it used to.
BTW I noticed some posts talking about replica watches. How can I grow my own replica watches and can I grow gems too? lol

Post Burried alive 
At 12 inches tall you pepper plants can handle buried leaves. The roots needs to dry out more than anything else. Roots need oxygen.

On rare occasion we get spammers in the forum. We don't always catch the posts, but when we do, or are alerted to them.

Thanks Roy. It looks like the only thing I will then need to do is to make sure I add a nice top layer of mulch since it all washed away.
As for the spam it amazes me as to how people profit from posting garbage in a forum.
