Today was a raining day, a perfect North Devon day. This weather is a real source of energy for all the crops in the fields. Thanks to this, courgettes double in size in two days, the broads beans multiply, and the carrots and the beetroots are absolutely ready to be dug up.
In contrast, the alternating between sunny and rainy days further develops fungal diseases. Mushrooms love these conditions of moist and warm and that is why we can see some attacks on the potatoes and on the onions.
The only thing to do is to harvest as fast as possible or try innovative treatments like spraying the powdery mildew on the onions with milk. We will see the result !! :)
