I planted my jack-o-latern pumkin seeds but at first I planted two seeds to see if it would work. It worked all right!!! The smaller one has 7 foot long vines and the bigger one has 15 foot long vines! They are creepinig up our house and into the next yard. What should I do?

Isn't it amazing?! Steer them into an area where you will not trip over them, and if you need to, trim the side shoots back. Pumpkin vines are notorious for wandering and growing very long.
