Potato Crop

We've been down to our allotment this afternoon to dig out potatoes.

It was very disappointing, a few new potatoes but the main crop was hardly worth digging.

We did notice earlier in the year that the plants themselves died off very early, probably due to blight caused by the wet summer, so we suspect that's why the crop is so poor.

Shame really, after all the work of digging the ground and planting them.

Oh well, we will try and get some manure onto the ground this winter and them try again next year.
