    Greetings plant folk,
    I am hoping someone can identify the cause of my withering chard leaves. Please see attached photo. This began about 10 days ago and is progressing at an alarming speed. I don't know if this is caused by insects or some kind of disease. Close up inspection reveals nothing to my untrained eye. Thank you for any help!

    More likely a disease. I'd pick off and burn the affected leaf.
