Growing Silverbeet, also Swiss Chard or Mangold

View the Silverbeet page

14 Oct 08 Emily (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
I have just started growing silverbeet and something is eating it - not slugs or snails. I have tried a spray after taking a cutting to the nursery and it is till being eaten. I am at a total loss and would love any ideas. I am tempted to pull it up and start again???? Some of my lettuce, beans and pumpkin look like it is being attacked as well. What am I doing wrong?
