A local Master Gardener replied this morning regarding the curly leaf disease I'm experiencing. Apparently, this area is experiencing increasing problems from this little bugger. They overwinter in the foot hills and then head down to the Valley!  What a Face  Audrey and Keeper, are you having any problems with them? Neem after dark tonight for sure!

Sanderson - you said "they overwinter in the foot hills ...".  Is THEY an insect which is causing this problem or a disease.  If it is a disease, what is the name of the disease and how are you fighting it??

Well heck, the title of the post should have told me, Leafhopper ???  Is this what has been causing your curly leaves.

Yes.  The virus is transmitted by the leafhopper.  Once the LH is infected, it can go from plant to plant.  The curling, NOT rolling, leaves are the give away.  MG said they can also infect squashes and cucumbers  Sad

I just got back from a local nursery for some more replacements. $$ From a person who grew everything from seed.
