Or avoid using Round-Up on them

...and it's not a water issue but I don't know what it is (besides Round-Up that is)

Woof! That was a hoppy soup kitchen to the local bug population. Bet they didn't even leave a Thank You note...

Cheers!

Look for the biggest, fattest bug you see nearby and smash it between two bricks! Wear eye protection and an apron 'cuz it's gonna get messy, and be thankful they didn't eat your support cable!

I didn't see the rainbow in the first pic, nice! Must be in your 'happy place'. The weird thing is, is that they seem to prefer certain varieties over others. I have a volunteer that I've been growing since about '96 and every year it ends up looking like yours and the others only have minor damage. Happy 4th!
