Evening ladies and gents, I spent the day at the allotment weeding the salad patch, it now looks very empty and it's quite hard too see the difference between grass growing where it shouldn't and baby spring onions (I haven't really grown much veg in the past apart from tommies really). Red lettuce and radishes doing well though.
Sorry to hear about the blight Becks, but it's one of those things as a gardener you can't really do much about (unless you want to faff around with Bordeaux mix but that will only slow blight down rather than stop it). I'd do as suggested and take the affected leaves off and of course keep your fingers crossed!
My OH has got the BBQ fired up for tea and I will most probably be tucking in to a selection of burnt things in due course.
