I’ve got leaf miners on the Tomatoes, Green Beans and Squash. I haven’t found the bug/insect that is doing the leaf mining, but after doing some research it looks like there are several different things that can do the leaf mining. I’ve pulled up the Peas Shelling ‘Green Arrow’ and replaced it with an Okra ‘Burgundy’ . I also repotted one group of Onion ‘Texas 1015’. So far they don’t look real happy with being repotted. I’ve harvested the Spinach ‘Bloomsdale’ and have put the Cucumber ‘Bush Slicer’ in that pot. I pulled the Sorrel out of it’s pot and found that it had almost no soil. I’ve replaced the soil and it seems a little happier now. I’ve put a “plant nanny” on the Squash ‘Summer Baby Round Zucchini’ and Radish ‘French Breakfast’. With the Plant Nanny the Squash is not wilting in the heat of the day.

The Okra ‘Longhorn’ have not come up. So I don’t think the seed is viable.
