I think you must have posted the same question somewhere else, but I'm not going to go looking for it. But I agree with who ever responded to the other one and said it looks like caterpillar droppings. I'd go looking for the caterpillar (there must be a pony in here somewhere! :) )

:lol: gotta go with Rainbow gardener on this one :lol:
...with huge droppings like that, it MUST be a PONY... :shock:
And should be easy to spot, and eliminate...save the Bt for harder to find bugz

Looks like a curled leaf beside the main leaf in the photo. Uncurl the leaf and see if the critter is hiding inside.
Eclectic gardening style, drawing from 45 years of interest and experience. Mostly plant in raised beds and containers primarily using intensive gardening techniques.

Thank you everyone, going to get some dust. I thought it was eggs of some kind.Did not know it was poop :). I am not used to growing in the fall, but this is Florida and I hope to learn.
