......I don't know what to think. I have plants that appears to have had such intense light/heat that the chlorophyll, in random leaves, is dissolved and holes burnt into them as if with a magnifying glass

. It's happening to plants on the front porch that gets direct sun from midmorning to mid-afternoon and to okra plants in the back garden. The strange part is that ALL the leaves are not "laser" burnt.

That's caterpillar damage. @PaulB3 is correct. Those are inch worms. Spray with Bt. You've got to maintain a visual inspection daily. That damage is days old.

Don't think that happened.....I only water at he base of the plants and, usually, later in the afternoons.
I know it's a silly question but do you have cold nights there? They don't like the cold, do the stems look alright close to the soil? I know cucumbers can have stem rot if they get too wet, could it be that?
