Answer: Based on your description I am not certain what chewed your plants although it might have been a groundhog or woodchuck. The strawberries should recover as long as you are able to keep them watered this summer. The peppers might not recover. Both would benefit from a topdressing of compost and perhaps a little extra fertilizer. Do not go overboard, though, since you do not want to burn the plants.
