spots on watermelon leaves
I recently moved to Virginia and decdided to plant a garden in new yard, including watermelon. The seeds were veeery slow to sprout, very slow to begin vining, and aren't really doing much. About a week ago, I saw small black ants swarming all over the leaves of one of the plants. The next day there were small black spots on the leaves, and each day the spots grew, until the leaves where the ants were are almost entirely black, and that plant is all but dead. This morning I saw ants swarming all over another of the melon plants. Any ideas on what is going on? Thank you for any help!
