Apparently there's been bad blight on the allotments for the last few years.
The plot just next to me admits to having not lifted his last year, too.

fortunately the main crop potato i've chosen has moderate blight resistance (Sante). Next year I'll look into sourcing Sarpo types.
my pink fir apples are more susceptible. hopefully the earlies should be out by then?

Have now read loads about blight, so with fingers and toes crossed that we're due a dry summer this year, I'm going to hedge my bets and grow some in the garden at home too.

also remember to look out for next year's potato day (it was january this year.)
