No more extra N now as the plant enters the flowering phase. Every day I move the main vine an inch or so in order to get a strong curve just where the female flower sits on the convex side. Small daily movements will help the plant grow into shape, rather than a single forceful movement later on which may compact, stress or damage interior vasculature. A broad and healthy phloem is one of the main reasons why pumpkins grow so big so it needs careful handling.
