This is my first time attempting to grow something from seeds.

A month after they sprouted, the vines started climbing the tomato cage I provided them.

Currently, they're in a pot facing south and receiving sun from noon to late afternoon. I water when the soil feels dry. No fertilizer used so far. I have also spotted some ants and a large spider on the vines/cage before.

I believe spots have been showing up on leaves since very early on. Here are photos I took today of some of the leaves:

And a photo of the whole pot:

Texas sun can be pretty intense, yes? You might relocate the pot where there was filtered sun at the heat of the day.

I tend to agree with Joseph, my first thought was sunburn.
Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.

AbbyR: Where there are ants crawling up and down anything, there usually are aphids and your pics sure look like damage from aphids. I would look under the leaves for same, and then spray with a purchased insecticidal soap (fatty acids of soap)! Can't recommend making your own, because there are so many variables. Cheers!
