Hi all!
I'm really hoping that you can help me.
What in the world is going on here!?!
I've grown Okra before, and have never seen any attacks like this...???
Front, and back view of the same leaf, and a view of the stem...

Front, and back, same leaf, and stem...

Any guesses? Opinions? I'm desperate! We're under attack! And I'm feeling clueless! *Blush*

Thank you so much for looking, and any and all suggestions. I'm all ears!

Leaf miners possibly.
I've read that a drenching of Neem oil water, is systemic.
The buggers live between the leaf layers, so topical sprays don't work.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

Thanks for that Philip. I had thought of the leafminers, but had never seen them leave such huge, gold colored messes like these. Taking your answer under advisement. Appreciate your help! Thank You!
