Please can you advise me as to what ailment has caused some of my potatoes to turn into white oozing puss-ridden gunge? Is it something airbourne or does the culprit reside in the soil.
Furthermore, do I pick my apples when they are the right size or when they are the right colour?
Alan , your potatoes sound like they have a nasty blight fungus. Do they smell? Did the top leaves turn brown?
You pick aples when they will part easily from the tree. If you cut one in half and the pips are brown, then they are ready. Size and redness depends on variety and crop load on the tree.
