We picked up like 40 organic plants for our garden from a farm and well, some of them were not so great from the start. Specifically our 8 rainbow and green chard, which were kinda dry and spotty. We were hopeful anyway but while almost everything else is thriving, we now see signs of some yucky aphid-type things. Last year we didn't recognize the signs when they started ravaging our beloved lacinato kale but that was way later in the season. Any suggestions to at least contain them, do we need to just get rid of the chard?

To know how to stop it, it's helpful to know what it is! My chard always gets leafminers. The aphids typically go after my broccoli, kale, anything in that family of plants. Can you take a picture of the creature?
