    I am planting 20 pumpkins this year. I've got transpants ready to go in tomorrow. Doing Small Sugar and Jack O Lanterns.

    How many pumpkins per plant should I shoot for?
    Should I pinch off some of the Jack O Lantern's to get some bigger fruits?
    Should I cover some areas of the vines with soil to promote more roots?
