I've done a rather poor job of getting main vine sets. I think this will be a notable factor in some poorer results than I would like. I was under perhaps a false impression that a side vine could have merits that could make it equal to a main. Although I can imagine a scenario where a side vine is equal to a main, but usually the main has more potential. Mike had a great result on a large side vine (2106 lbs) but perhaps his main vine had the potential to hit 2400+. It takes some luck to get the full potential out of a plant. I've always thought his big pumpkin proves a side vine can be equal to a main. But what if his main could have grown a 2500 lb pumpkin? Then my assumptions are all turned upside down.
