My family is growing a little garden on our rooftop, for home consumption. But we're quite beginners, and need some help with managing pests on a few of our plants. We have a crop of spinach, chillies, tomatoes, okra, brinjal etc. and recently, some pests have attacked the okra and tomato plants. i did some reading, but am confused with the symptoms - guess it needs some experience in handling pests, so i'm posting some pictures of the plants here for guidance. Any help is greatly appreciated! Would prefer to keep it organic, but other remedies are also welcome (can try it if all other methods fail).

This is some sort of white fungi like thing on the okra (suspected powdery mildew?)


This bugger was sitting on another leaf - this plant had many wilting leaves


Here are some other symptoms on the okra


And finally on the okra, there are these black eggs here and there


Apart from these, i also found a fat black caterpillar munching away into one okra fruit - it had already made a hole into it. Sadly i tossed it off before i took a picture, but i suspect the black eggs and this caterpillar are somehow related?

And on the tomatoes


Thank you!
