Good news about the potatoes we had to remove the foliage from because of signs of blight starting on the leaves. They are cooking up well and we are enjoying eating them, they taste just as good and cook up just the same.
The downside is we are having to make a check on them more often than we normally would after digging up our potatoes. They are stored in the dark in a light and airy shed, we are not planning or hoping to keep them in store for as long as if they had not shown signs of blight starting.
When we removed them from the allotment I spent longer checking through the harvested potatoes than I have in the past. I discarded any that looked a bit soft or badly damaged. The ones with any marks from the fork made when digging them out are best used up as quickly as possible and not stored for future use.

Growing Your Own Fruit and Vegetables
We grow our own fruit and vegetables for our meals for as much of the year as we can. Without a greenhouse we have to buy shop food in the winter months but in the spring, summer and autumn we often have enough to share with family and friends.
