This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

cabbage spots

savoy cabbage spots raddichio spots

Any ideas about whats causing these spots? I'm thinking it doesn't look like insects. Maybe sunburn, because we've gone so fast from cool and cloudy weather to hot sunny weather? Comments appreciated.

This is not a professional opinion, but my mustard and arugula also has spots similar to yours and they only showed up after a week of extremely hot weather and lots of sun. It could be sunburns, some small parts of theplants even look dry and crispy.

Could it be the White rust?
