I got out in the garden with the camera this evening. I’ll be putting pictures to plants as I get them resized and online.

This is a picture of my german butter potatoes and more specifically the damage flea beetles do to them. You can also see some flea beetles, they’re the black dots.

This is minor, I started attacking back with insecticidal soap as soon as I saw them. Jamie’s eggplants last year looked like a screen door they had so many holes in them. :-/

    I had them on my eggplant last year too – same screen door effect.
