And then, there are the potatoes. Nearly drowned after the two extremely wet days we had within the last week, they recovered fast, and we have already earthed them a number of times. They are quite leggy this year, but hopefully they'll fill out a bit! I am spraying them again with horse tail tea, which appeared to work last year. It holds the blight at bay by introducing silica into the potato plants which makes it harder for the blight fungus spores to settle on the potato leaves. Says the book. As long as it works.
