Well after a great start and month ahead of last year, things were looking good. However I had a visitor in the patch that decided to have a munch on the plant. I lost the main vine and many secondaries too. I was not sure what to do and just left it for a week or too. I decided to carry on and have pollinated 3 all however are on secondary vines but that's all I got for this year so we will see. Pics will follow soon.
