Josh.  It doesn't look like insect damage to me. Although that could have 
been the start  of it.  I hadn't thought it was in a pot.  (none visible) . 
Since I grow almost nothing in pots except for starting things out to ease 
some transitions, I hand't considered that as a factor.  I think it got too 
dry some days, also. Get bigger deeper pots, if  you're going to grow stuff 
in pots.

It's really hard to control moisture and other factors even though some 
aspects are easier to control (if you've got the time)  Loss of attention 
though, can wipe stuff out pretty fast. When I grow in pots, I water them 
every day, or use some clayey loam to slow drainage and keep more moisture 

Much depends on the plant and how many I've killed before. .
