Im finding my leaves are getting these yellow and white spots, that are (maybe) causing holes to appear in the leaves.

there seems to be white, crystal like stuff forming on the leaves, that sometimes look like a clear liquid, almost like water. Although im fairly certain its solid.

There is nothing better for sucking/chewing insects and secondly, caterpillars.

But the crystalline white stuff is called edema and is caused by improper watering.

ok thanks. we have been having flash storms lately. ill try and water less, to help account for this.

I sprayed well with spinosod soap today, and might do a soil test tomorrow.

I sprayed all the effected leaves, their undersides, and any leaves around them. but i think the holes are getting worse.

I'm also noticing more discoloration. both around the holes. and on separate, untouched leaves.

Some of this may be due to the leaf trying to grow through the trellis netting i set up for it.

But some effected leaves are pretty far from any netting.

i hardly see any bugs at all. just a few ants here and there. again, any info would be much appreciated. thanks.

I have been giving it some of the fertilizer i give the tomato plants, but not nearly as much.

Also I have not watered them at all for the lat 4 days. But it has rained almost every night, and the soil is still moist when i stick my finger in.

The leaves were still getting holes so I sprayed the entire plant again. however now, i noticed a few leaves on 1 vine have wilted. I havent had any leaves wilt so far. so I fear the worse, bacterial wilt. I have removed the effected vine and leaves. but im afraid there is nothing I can do.

does any one know ways to delay or prevent the spread?
