also my spinach seedling has bowed down to the extent that the cotyledon leaves now touch the ground, some of them have been uprooted.  I stay in 2nd floor in mumbai and the spinach is on the box-grilled window. is the problem becasue of rains shower / wind or could there be a disease. i have used garden soil for sowing seeds

the pumpkin leaf might have been attacked by a caterpillar or something. leaf miner only makes marks and doesn't eat so much of leaf. See the underside of leaves for caterpillars/worms. Pick them out. also watch out for their droppings.. thats a sign there are worms.


spinach seedlings bends down in reach for sunlight. mound up some soil around them and they are good to go.
