Stupid Squash bugs have been rearing their ugly heads. Every morning I pick the eggs off the leaves hoping to keep them out. I never see the adult though. So far no babies but it is early days yet. At the community garden I found what look just like squash bug eggs on a tomato leaf. Confused squash bugs I guess.
I found a few Colorado Potato Beetle eggs on my potatoes. They are bright orange eggs but they put them on the underside of the leaves so you don't always see them. I figure that if I saw and removed one cluster that I probably missed many more so I guess I will be squishing CPB larvae soon.
My eggplant are struggling..I found a bright green bug that looked like an aphid only sci fi bigger..1/2". Seemed to be hanging around some yellow/gold like eggs that I found on the undersides of the tomatillo and eggplant. It was chomping away on the leaves..half of the leaves were gone ..so idk if it was the little grasshoppers or if something else is chowing down. Tomorrow I'll be spraying soapy water...
