Quite right, I'll eat them anyway, and maybe it will deter some of the freeloaders on the allotment!
I can't see any problem with the leaves, and it is a fairly new bed. Most of the plants were put in last year and some are just runners off those. I grew Elsanta because they were available and I know they have good flavour, but I've since learned that they are not so good for resisting disease etc. Maybe I'll look out for others to try.
Also you are right, I am down in (at the moment) sunny Somerset.
