On Friday evening I decided that I would pick my first courgette. This is the first time I have grown them and although I did sow a couple last year which did not germinate I am really pleased with their progress this year.
On Saturday afternoon I decided to dig up the row of early potatoes that had given me a scare a few weeks ago of maybe having blight.
Since then they have made little growth and started dying back completely. As you can see from the picture a pretty poor yield for ten plants.
One had been attacked by slugs and one had a couple of scabs on it but no other signs of disease.
I left them out in the sun to dry after washing them but when I came to bring them in about ten of them had disappeared! I really could not believe it until I remembered the picture I had taken and sat here in the evening matching the ones I had with the picture and confirmed my suspicions. Guess I better get a web cam or two setup to keep an eye on the rest of the veggies now.
