Hello everyone,
Recently I planted some pea seedlings in my elevated garden bed, but a few days ago I noticed that the leaves were turning quite ugly. I’m not too sure what the problem is, could someone help me figure it out? I’ve included a picture of some leaves I cut off from the plant.
Thank you

To be certain I need to see a close up picture of the entire plant but I am fairly sure you have a severe mite problem. Powdery mildew is another possibility. Spray in the early AM with Neem Oil

Hi, thanks for responding. I bought some Neem oil and will start using it. Do you think cutting the affected leaves will help the plant? Here are some more photos of the plant.

Powdery mildew. PM is usually not a fatal disease. The plant needs all of the photosynthesis it can get and by removing leaves you will probably only be making the matters worse. Hot dry weather will help kill the pathogen and hot dry weather is what we will have. Do not overhead water and try to keep the leaves dry. Apply the neem again in 7 days.
