My fall watermelon & Canteloupe are growing nicely and are beginning to have some fruit should I trim the vine back a bit now or should I just let it run? Thanks

If your vines have developed enough fruit you can cut off the ends and the vines will stop growing and stop producing flowers and fruits. Instead, the plant will concentrate on ripening those fruits that are already growing. I tend to leave mine vines alone but pruning is certainly an option for you.
