colored marks on potato leaves

That's not blight

From what I can see those spots are just on the older leaves - I think they're just the wear and tear of old age (it comes to us all) - they've been exposed to the sun and the wind and the rain for quite a while - they've done their job and they're coming to the end of their life - I should think your potatoes are more or less ready to harvest.

Good morning  Fg   Have a good day ... we've had a bit of rain here, but the forecast is for a dry day - I hope it's right as OH told me not to mow the lawns yesterday, he'd do them today ..............

We were completely bushed after our night out on Friday night and went to bed at 9pm last night, intending to listen to the radio ...........................zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

As I'm a lady I do all my digging with a border spade - I have a wooden handled Joseph Bentley stainless steel one and I'm very pleased with it

I bought it via Amazon
