Last week I started tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants from seed. Everything germinated and started growing just fine, then this morning I turned on their lights and found nothing but bare stems.. the leaves were gone! What on earth could have caused this???

It was my turn to look after the school rabbit once. My tray of sunflower seedlings looked like that 5 minutes after he arrived :(

rodents can do a bunch of damage in a hurry. Set some traps and bait them with peanut butter. You want to be certain of what the culprit is. Then you can set poison out.

In my past experience, everything being decapitated in a night that quickly, is likely caused by some type of rodent.
Before resorting to traps, try planting some herbs - rosemary, mint - the second go around; or start off with larger seedlings.
