Some of my WS babies

Sorry for the blurry pictures. I can't edit them.

As you can see something is eating my nicotiana burgundy. Also I'm wondering how it is ever going to get big enough to bloom before summer is over.

This is not wintersowed. I have been trying to eradicate it from my fence line for years. I have no idea what it is. I sprayed it last year and it came back.

I will post more. I don't want to put too many on one post in case those with dial up want to see them.

My nicotiana has been under attack since day one by what look like Potato Beetles (or a cousin of them) and some of my plants have looked very similar to yours.
The beatles are yellow with black stripes, they lay eggs on the leaves which look like tiny orange balls. I also found some on a Petunia planted in the same container.
I've been picking them off but finally gave up.
Maybe that's what's eating yours?
