What are these holes in my artichoke leaves?

by garden slug

There were black bugs around the area, but couldn't tell what they were. Any ideas?  Looks like something is eating the leaves.


bugs, Artichokes


It could be flea beetles. They are around at about this time of year- spray some insecticidal soap on them (diluted soap and water with a little veggie oil works) to kill them and deter them for later.
