Yeah I forget that you're growing outdoors!For sure. Will take some more tomorrow.
I thought ladybugs only stick around until they're done eating. Predator mites are another option I'm considering..
Thanks for pointing that out syenite. I've just sort of ignored it...Hopefully these help...I'm thinking calcium deficiency or pests of some sort?There seems to be a kind of mottled pattern on the leaves - can we get a closer shot Abstrakt?
Will be getting some neem oil and spinosad very soon. Got to looking with a microscope and found a bunch of thrips.Hmmm yeah looks like it could be a pest issue! You will want to look closely all over the plant, especially the undersides of leaves, for the actual culprits. A magnifying device would help, like a jeweller's loupe or a macro lens camera/phone.
Could be thrips or mites or something.
My first mitigating action would be a foliar spray of neem oil! But best to try and identify the pest first.
