Insecticidal Soap Sprayed

I noticed some insects on the Scotch Bonnet last night – hope they aren’t the same ones as the tomatoes. I think they are aphids…but that’s what I thought about the toms at first too! I covered the plant with Garden Safe Insecticidal Soap today, which we bought at Lowe’s last night. There are quite a few small leaves, as this plant is from last year and it is just now coming into season after I pruned it a couple of weeks back. Some leaves are a bit yellow, so I added some fish emulsion to the watering today.

It is currently 75F with a projected high of 84, so I moved the plant into shade before spraying.
