The potatoes foilage

Is still as green as a month ago and still growing

This means the spuds are not ready yet to dig, right?

There is no sign of the plants dieing down

Hi Bf:
Did you find out which variety of potato you planted?
Were they Chieftain , perchance. This red potato is a little later than some.
I think since yours were planted late, they are just doing their thing....the damp weather helped the foliage stay in "growth mode".
They will soon die down, it seems to happen almost overnight.
Cheers

I can't remember what they were Sharon

Blue potatoe I think

My best friend planted a red kind and they have been eating them since middle of July

Another neighbour, hers are like mine
