Hi. I am new here and very new at gardening and tend to have the opposite of a green thumb. But I'm trying again this year on the small deck in my apartment. My deck is west facing, get's plenty of sun but we are very close to a river. I haven't noticed a huge amount of bugs, but I am sure they are there. I currently have a tomato plant, a mix of lettuces, jalapeno peppers, some herbs and flowers. I have had them planted for about 2 weeks now in containers and most of them seem to be doing just fine. But then I noticed my tomato plant dying and I noticed little holes all over my flowers and plants and what look like giant bite marks out of the leaves. Then I noticed my indoor live plants had webs and holes all over the leaves and it wasn't doing too well either. My mom is an expert, so I called her. She told me to spray all my plants with soap water, tops and bottoms of the leaves and pull off the dead parts of my indoor plant. So I cleaned up some of my plants, sprayed them with soap water, replanted a new tomato plant and planted a new mint plant. I planted that mint plant last night and woke up to it looking like this:Probably half of it is gone. Plus, I grow a basil plant on my kitchen window and I brought it outside for a while to get some more sun (it had been sprayed with soap water), brought it back in last night (it still looked fine) and then woke up to it this morning with the tops eaten off. Grr! I'm getting so frustrated that my plants are getting eaten up so quickly! Any ideas of what they are or how to get rid of them? I live in northern Utah by the Jordan River. Any help is greatly appreciated!
