Hi Fraser when did you plant your potatoes and what variety did you plant? Our first earlies are a decent size now and were planted late March. Also potatoes like lots of good organic matter underneath them whilst carrots and beetroot need a much leaner soil with a very fine tilth. I doubt that the rain has caused a problem we've had considerable amounts this year. Lack of sun can be a problem though.
