    I have been growing flats of baby gourmet leaf lettuce all summer in my shaded greenhouse.They have been doing great and I was about to ramp up to do a big production for sale. Recently though I have been having problems with some sort of disease that I have not been able to identify. I have posted a picture here to show the progression of it. It starts out as small spots that appears silvery or white on the leaves and progresses to the point where the leaves turn brown and die. I am growing everything organic.
    Anybody have any ideas about what this is and how to combat it?
    Your input is appreciated.

    Thanks, I have already been there and there really wasn't anything that looked like my lettuce looks.

    Anybody else have any ideas?
