No sorry @lewis8232 but is it like a coating of something, or has the leaf moldered away from touching the ground maybe?

..it looks like beetroot leaf miner... a grub that gets between the leaf layers and eats it... leaving the empty leaf layers..

..yes turn the leaf over and you will see the little grub in the leaf (looks like a black dot near the edge of what's been eaten) and squash it or simply remove the whole leaf
