First Female in the Pumpkin Zone

Somewhere between 10-14 feet is typically the sweet spot to set your pumpkin on the main vine.  I have a female that has shown up at about 13 feet.  I'll pollinate it, but I'm inclined to wait for a female to show up on the main that is a little farther out so I can get the plant and root structure larger before the pumpkin starts taking off.  However, you should pollinate everything because you never know which pollination will take and which pollinations end up growing well.
