The leaves on this potato top must have almost been frost damaged. I otherwise thought I had double-guarded myself: plastic on constantly during the day, and with the prospect of frost at night another tarpaulin over. But the duvet of icy sludge the other day must have weighed both tarpaulin and plastic down on the leaves so that there was a direct connection between the plant and the ice without an insulating layer between the air. And then the damage happens regardless of whether you think you have covered as you should.
Fortunately, this is the only (minor) injury, the rest of the bed escaped and must also be jumped soon. In the second bed with the earliest potatoes, a hype could also be needed, but here the radishes (sown at the same time as the potato laying) are just a little in the way, at least for another week. Which in the big picture is enough to live with for the potatoes.
