I don't know why, but the outer parts of the leaves on two of my bell peppers are turning brown. This started to happen about a week ago, and I'm afraid it could ruin the plants. The worst leaf has turned yellow and has the most brown spots on it. It is in the third picture. I don't know if this is being caused by a disease, or if they don't have enough nutrients. I planted them in 3-12-17 fertilizer, so they should have enough nutrients.

Has it been raining a lot? Looks like minor water damage. If the affected leaves turn completely yellow remove them.

I've gotten around 6 inches of rain in the past ten days, so yes, it has been raining a ton. I also planted my bell peppers too close to my patio, so they get 6-7 hours of sunlight everyday. There is a big beach umbrella set up on my patio that creates too much shade for the bell peppers.The day after rain has gone through, they don't dry out until about noon.
