You Guys are Good !

I just discovered a few spinach leaf miner tracks, and some bits of their eggs on the underside of my first ever spinach grown in my yard.

You guys are good ! If it weren't for this forum, I wouldn't know the relationship between the two, and wouldn't know what they were either.

Just goes to show, that even if you've gardened for years, you can still learn lots of new things here =:)

Thanks !! =:)

Leaf miners are a pain in the butt because there's not much you can do about them besides using row covers and stringently ensuring there aren't any gaps where the adults can go under the covers.
I always plant spinach early (early April), so I get a good crop before the leaf miners arrive. Then I plant again in August/September for a Halloween harvest. Spinach can tolerate temps. down to -10 C and keep growing.
