I’m new to gardening, so this may be an obvious one. My cos was doing beautifully and all the sudden in the past week, the leaves are degrading into sludge. I can’t find any evidence of slugs or other insects. Maybe I’m looking in the wrong place.

Cos lettuce likes a warm climate and an Irish summer can be too cool and too wet and this would cause the plants to deteriorate.

Also it tends to be ready all at once.
