We're off to Scotland now for a week so the plant will be untended for all that time. It might get a bit dehydrated but overall it should be ok as the soil is damp under the surface. I decided to shut the polytunnel completely so it will get hot in there but there but the 2 extraction fans should help a bit. In retrospect I should have rigged up the auto misting system oh well. I'd rather it got too hot than too cold and the temps are forecast to go down to 7C the next few days. I also made a rookie error this morning and snapped off a secondary by mistake right at the main vine. I can fill the gap with tertiary growth which should be ok but it's not ideal. Let's see how things are when I get back.
