My potatoes are showing signs of Blight should I dig them up now whilst I still have a crop?

Depends on the weather. Blight seems to die when it's too hot (around 30-35°C).
Have you tried baking soda recipes, or nettle slurry?

If you still have some potatoes to plant, you can do it now (Mitchourine's method).
You will be able to dig them up in november.
