|Plants can tolerate lots of holes in their leaves so I wouldn't be too concerned that the leaves are not perfect. All kinds of insects and caterpillars can feed on the leaves and then move on to other gardens so it's not surprising that you can't find the culprits. They eat and then and leave. I wouldn't use pesticides at this point. Just keep monitoring your plants and inspecting for pests. If you find any, just pick them off the plants or hose them off with a strong stream of water from the hose. Best wishes with your garden!
