Deer trimmed the pepperoncini peppers

I noticed that the deer trimmed all the tops off of my pepperoncini pepper plants. They have done this in the past with other pepper varieties (jalapeno, volcano, etc.). They usually leave the peppers alone, but they sure do like the pepper leaves!

I usually protect them by keeping wire curved over the top of the planter box but hadn't gotten around to it yet ... the deer got lucky.
