We planted a bunch of vegetables in different pots for the first time this year. We haven't used any pesticides or fertilizers on them.
We've been noticing little black dots on the pots we planted them in, and on the plants themselves. So far we've only noticed the dots on the yellow squash, zucchini, and cauliflower, but they're also on all of the pots.
The plant leaves also have a bunch of holes in them, and we're not sure if that's normal or not. There are lots of gnat-type bugs flying around the garden all the time.
Can anyone fill us in on what's going on, and how to stop these issues if they're harmful?
