Fighting the Blight!

Sadly our crop of potatoes and tomatoes at our community allotment have been attacked by the dreaded blight. Our volunteers are making the best of it and have been busy destroying all the plants and infected tomatoes and potatoes.


Blight is a fungal disease which spreads through spores blown by winds from one area to another, rapidly spreading the infection to tomatoes and potatoes.


On a positive note we have managed to save plenty of green tomatoes, we are leaving these to ripen in our poly tunnel to enjoy at a later date!


Have you been affected by blight? what are you doing with all your green tomatoes?
