Q.My Entire Bell and Jalapeno Pepper Raised Bed Has Wilted and Died

The plants were healthy and blooming and small fruit had formed. Suddenly, within a matter of days all the plants wilted and died. I checked all the leaves and could see no sign of aphids. I have gardened for many years and never had this happen. What happened?
