Here are the 4 Rouge vif d'Etampes pumpkin plants. There is one young Wyatt's Wonder that will fill in the middle, hopefully. The late sprouting Snackjacks will have some competing to do for space, but I'll try to make room. I'm using burlap green coffee bags and other grass blockers between the vines, leaving space between the bags for the little roots along the vines to reach the ground. In the last week, the vines have outpaced the bag laying, though! If the developing pumpkins make it to orange, I'll have some to share.
