    White on carrots

    I've had luck using water with a bit of washing up liquid in it. It didn't get rid of them entirely but there's a lot fewer now.A friend said it can harm bees though, so I'm looking at alternatives.

    Salad leaves running to seed

    I believe it depends on the lettuce variety either. Some packages have the data if the variety is resistant to bolting, or if it can be successfully grown in summer.

    Sometimes they grow new vertical leaves after they get knocked down. It's still early so they should do. But I don't think that the fflattened ones will come back up in the way they were before.

    Damaged or diseased leaves. Remove them. What living portions remain, simply drain the plant of nutrients.
