Harvest second-early potatoes

If you planted your potatoes early in April, second earlies and salad potatoes should be ready for lifting as and when you want to use them; maincrops will need to stay in the ground as long as possible to bulk up, but keep an eye on blight forecasts and be ready to cut back the foliage at the first sign of a problem ( with luck this will prevent the disease from spreading down into the tubers).
