I have put sugar ann snap peas and green pepper in my garden. The peas leaves are all yellow at the bottom of the plant and they look good at the top, I do have some peas starting on the plant.

Same with the green pepper, the leaves at the bottom are turning yellow, but otherwise the plant looks fine and has a pepper growing.

I live in Northern Illinois outside of Chicago.

Thank you

Your pepper plant could be underwatered or overwatered, difficult to say.

The peas look normal for this time of year. Peas hate hot weather and start to die off turning yellow or brown starting from the bottom of the plant upwards.

Pepper looks malnourished could be waterlogged, but more likely just need dose of water soluble fertilizer.

Looks like edible pod peas. Snow peas, maybe ? They all like cool weather, temps, down to 18 degrees, or ????
Doesnt bother them.
Start them earlier.
Hear, where it dosent get below 18 degrees, we plant, snow peas seeds Sept 1 st.
Mine quit producing around May.
Heat, kills them, from bottom, up.

Pepper's !!! Could be to much or to little water.
Could be, they need fertilizer.

It, also, be as simple as Empson Salt.
Pepper's ! Along with, tomatoes, and eggplant, really like ! Empson salt !
Use both, as directed.

Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

The peas are dying from the heat naturally. Plant a new crop next month. The peppers need some P and K fertilizer I think. And some micro-nutrients (like kelp meal) wouldn't hurt.
