It seems that you have a pretty good idea of what is going on with the potatoes! Unfortunately, this does appear to be blight. Your weather conditions differ from ours in most of the US at this time, so it would be hard to say which blight that has infected the plant.

Thank you Bush Doctor. I suspect it’s late blight.
What would you recommend I do?
Cut off the infected foliage and hope for the best or dig them up now?
My first big crop of red roosters so I would like to save what I can.
Thanks again.
