August harvests

The effect of blight has been variable; the Belle de Fontenay potatoes were a black, oozy mess and consigned to the skip, whereas Anya, Charlotte and Juliette tubers seem to have survived. The Sarpo Mira haulms though showing symptoms of blight are still growing. The outdoor tomatoes are more or less a write-off.

In the plot greenhouse the battle continues to be waged in an attempt to prevent the tomatoes from being affected. The plants now stand naked of leaves and there is little else that I can do for them. I could gather all the tomatoes and make green tomato chutney but that somewhat defeats the objects of growing tomatoes in the first place. If all fails we still have a disease free crop in our garden greenhouse.
