My baby leaf spinach has a lot of white ball-like speckles all over the leaves, concentrated in the middle of the plant where the new growth comes from. They brush off and are on all of the spinach plants. What are they and how can I control it. They are also in a bed with silverbeet, beetroot and rocket.
