blight

I am indeed wary - worried even without the composting problem, as it's impossible not to leave any potatoes in the ground when they're as small as these were. I begin to wonder how anyone's patch ever recovers from these diseases once they've been introduced.

I watched Friday's programme, showing tomato blight, and inviting further comments from viewers on blight. I had potato blight earlier in the year, and cut down all of the foliage, but some of the foliage ended up on the compost heap by mistake, instead of being buried or burned. Does this mean all the compost is unusable, or if I leave it long enough will it become harmless? The foliage had only just started to turn, and the potatoes that we have dug up have been sound, though small, so the blight can't have got very far.
