Anyone know what these yellow spots on the leaves are? Most of them have a sticker like thorn coming out on both sides of the leaf

The yellow spots are galls. To ID the tree it would narrow down the options if you could check whether the leaf arrangement on the branches is opposite or alternate.

Anyone know what these eggs are on my tomato plants? They are poppy seed size. If they are "good" eggs like ladybugs, I'll leave them. I fear the are moth eggs.

@texaskitty111, looks like squash bug eggs: http://cherthollowfarm.com/chf_species_taxonomy/hemiptera/

@AR, kind of looks like something funky happened in that one spot in that planter, going mostly by the last pic. Maybe someone dumped a beverage? Dog pee? Could be powdery mildew. If the sun isn't shining on that planter for at least 6 hours, it may not be enough for these full sun-sters. If you think that might be the case, watering only if really dry could help these plants for what's left of summer this year. Next year, you might have better luck with less-than-full-sun plants, those in between full sun and full shade, if you determine there's not 6+ hrs of sun hitting this planter.

Thanks for the input. I found those squash bug eggs in my garden at home and got rid if them asap even though I didn't know they where so harmful thanks for the link very helpful.

I ended up pulling everyone out and replacing with fall flowers and grasses. These are window box's in front of my job I convinced my boss to plant in soil instead of just putting potted plants that seemed to die within a week. I was sure that I would get better results my way but those boxes gave me agita all summer. They were getting 6 hours of sun but the location was hot and windy and seemed to be a breeding ground for all types of critters.I think you are right about pouring something on the plants (left over coffee). My Boss was very patient while I struggled to keep plants alive. If she lets me I think next year I will go with succulents like I wanted to do originally.

Yep, that's a lot of the fun of gardening, whatever doesn't work as well as expected can be changed next time. All winter to plan, take pics, solicit ideas...! For any spot, there's plants that would love it, just gotta correctly diagnose the spot, then eliminate what won't work, find those that would thrive.
