Funny that - I have grown silverbeet for years without problem - this year I
have had two crops become unusable due to the spotting. It seems to have
coincided with an influx of snails, but the warm humid weather may have been
the catalyst for a fungus attack - I'm off to counter attack with some
copper - has the added bonus of getting rid of the snails as well :-)
