Pumpkin set out in sun for an hour to adjust, leaf damage appears on both plants seen in picture. Ozone or sunburn?

Plants recovered well, appear to be growing well under hoop house. Opened up during calm warm days.

Removed stakes guiding the pumpkins to let the vine better run across the ground. Leafs may be tilted too much in to the ground?

Plant option 1 to keep. Vine is curving more than I prefer to work with the limited sq ft.

Plant 2 to decide to keep. The far leaf is running in to the side of the house. I'd like to keep this up still to provide shade and wind block. This may be the deciding factor. I'm also worried bout the vine end. The last 2 leafs that you can see are shooting off parallel to the ground. Interfering with the vine setting. Any experience with this?

Plant 1 is showing some splitting on the main vine. Is this normal with growth?

Pumpkin weeded, more top soil put down, soaker hose readjusted. Plant to bury this under a fine layer of dirt tomorrow.

Kinked leaf stem supported. Hopefully this grows itself. out. I kept the 2 first secondary vines for the moment. They are already established and have their own leaves. I want to make sure I have good plant growth in my limited space.

Main vine has a slight bend where it branches over to the next planting area. Soil is lifted on both sides to allow for more even growth. Hoping this corrects itself, no splitting yet.

View down the main vine. I feel like the secondaries are close together, so a lot of it is covered.

View of the work done in the small garden today. Finished with some wind block. I don't think this is too tall for the plant. Plastic is put back up to protect from some rainy weather / storms. Shade cloth is on order to arrive this week which will replace it for the full length
