Hi I'm new and wondering if any seasoned gardeners can help me with my leafy greens.

We've had a lot of rain/stormy weather and somethings happened! They have whitish stuff that looks like dust but isnt? Like the leaves are scarred? I'm in New Zealand.

Thanks!

Hi and welcome to the forums
I think that it's just rain damage, you said that you had a lot of rain and maybe after it rained the sun came out and scorched the leaves, it will recover when it grows more.

It looks like powdery mildew. There are many home remedies from apple cider vinegar to baking soda to milk and others but I have always had better luck by using Neem Oil. Having had a lot of rain is a prime motivator for the fungus to start.
