It is early september my pumpkin is about 200lbs. and seems to be healthy. My problem is it is strarting to grow on top of one of the side vines that is attached to the vine the pumpkin is attached to, should I cut that vine off or leave it alone. I am afraid it might cause the stem to stress and should I dead head all the other vines(they are longer than 10 feet) so the plant will use all its energy on the producing a larger pumpkin.
