James, good to hear from someone a bit local with similar climate conditions.
My auto crop this year was very, very disappointing and I bearly covered the growing costs.
5 AK’s - planted Feb only 2 made to harvest
3 Durban Poison - planted April and 1 got harvested
3 Dedoverde Haze - planted June no harvest
Nearly 70% loss can be put down to low seed germination, cow browsing patch, caterpiller infestation and bud rot.
My main crop is still going well and hopefully, now that today is Autumn Equinox and we go 12-12 from now on bud fattening should really kick in.
