Blight!

Damn!  I was pretty sure it was going to happen, but still upset when it did!  I have the start of blight on the potatoes.  Interestingly the row of Charlotte seem to be affected the worst (but my neighbours also have Charlottes and they are fine) Not a great photo but the affected leaves can be seen…IMG_5931We have decided to start digging potatoes, even though it is early.  If we left them we would get a bigger crop, but maybe they will all be affected by blight anyway. We’ve got a lot, so rather start digging as we need them. I have to admit to a real childlike happiness at digging the first ones – Amandine. They were delicious too!IMG_5971
