This outdoor plant looked fine yesterday. This morning its got leaves that look chewed on and those dark clumps along the main stem. Also a weird slimy substance near the base of some leaves at the top.
Is this from caterpillers? Slugs? (UPDATE: I suspect slugs.
I don’t see any, or anything else on the plant. My wife had moved another potted vegetable plant next to this one yesterday. I moved it farther away last night and see a slug in that pot this morning.
I’m thinking of picking up some Captain Jack’s Deadbug (Spinosad) spray and spraying down this plant + the two (currently unaffected) next to it, just to be safe. Any other suggestions?
