I put a few cucumber seeds down in front of my tomatoes awhile back, just because I had a bare spot. Now they are looking horrid, with the "black dot" plague (aphids? mites? I'm not too good with identifying critters). Anyway, they are covered, and the leaves are all curled, etc. I'm thinking to pull them and throw them out, but since they seem to be only on the cukes and are leaving alone nearby broccoli and tomatoes, the thought occurred to me that maybe they are serving as useful decoys. Or do they just like the cucumbers and all I'm doing is breeding lots of them.
