No blight or breeze

In contrast to last week Tuesday was a day without even a breeze. The morning had a few warm sunny periods but the afternoon was mostly cloudy.

It was our first visit to the plot in nearly a fortnight. Last week's wind had blown over one tepee of runner beans and the cardoons were lying all over the path but they had already been wind damaged by strong winds before last week’s.

There’s plenty of tidying up to do on the plot. The first of these is to lift my remaining potatoes so I set about lifting my Nicola potatoes. They’ve produced an excellent crop with minimal slug damage. For the first time in several years I haven’t noticed any signs of blight on any of the potato crop. Perhaps a benefit of the particularly poor August weather this year! I've only Sarpo Mira left to lift now.
