Can anyone help me identify this on my mustard greens!

I just planted a few new batches of mustard greens about 2-3 weeks ago, they are in long containers on my patio - they were coming in fine and now I have this white stuff on them. I tried to look as close as possible but can't figure out what it is. It will smear if I rub it hard enough, but I am not sure if it is mold, or a fungus or a bug stuff. I appreciate your imput, I may have rip it up, :cry: they are only about 5-6 inches tall and it seems to be on every other leave.

White Spot

Well it seems by description to be white spot, but the soil is NEW from a bag not re-used, and the seeds are new. We haven't had any rain in over 4 weeks and I have not been over watering... So it leads me to believe maybe the seeds are tainted as the article said if the seeds came from a crop that was tainted by white spot it could be from that, so before I rip it out I will try a copper fungicide but I just can't see me eating them, maybe I will just rip them out and throw away soil and try another seed. They are in a pot so no big lose - crap!! I am the worst at learning new stuff! :lol:
