What is happening to my brassicas?

I have brassicas growing in my greenhouse. I grew them from seed and am waiting for a few more weeks to plant out. They seem to be stressed about something. Do these images indicate a particular issue?

    Not sure about the spotting - particularly on the first photo - but I would imagine they are of a size to have been hardening off for a week or two rather than still being in a GH. Difficult to tell the depth of the pots too so needed potting on ?
    Others will have more info/advice for you so hang on :)

    I’d have brassicas outside hardening off now ... the heat of a greenhouse, particularly during thus very warm spell, won’t suit them. Too much heat or dryness at the roots can lead to bolting so try to avoid that. A cold frame with a removable top would be better than a greenhouse if you have one or can rig one up.
