These are Katydid Eggs. Katydids are large, usually green insects that are related to and which resemble Grasshoppers, but with much longer antennae. Like Crickets, Katydids make audible sounds that contribute to the orchestra of sound produced by insects. Though they feed on leaves, Katydids are solitary feeders who do litter harm to garden plants. We would encourage you to tolerate them in your garden.
