My siverbeet is growing well... but it is getting brown rusty spots on it...I think it is some kind of fungus. I do not like to use chemicals on my garden-does anyone know how to combat this problem of rusty greens?

Copper is always a good option for most fungus, great if it is rust.
Eat the leaves when young, if it is like the spots we get on our silverbeet it is the cooler damp weather that promotes 'rust' and usually mainly on the older leaves. I feed those to the chickens, they don't care.
