Look closely at the plants and see if you can find insects. If not, it is probably grasshoppers. They come and go leaving their damage. I don’t use pesticides so have learned to think leaves with holes in them are pretty. :-} I handpick larger insects actually on plants and squish their eggs. I want butterflies and bees so am willing to do this.
