ya ive done it but a good pollination is hard get in the heat so try to wait for a rainy day to pollinate. a week after the flower died my pumpkins were 35 lbs but then the vine borrors got it and this year i found one spot of cucumber beetle damage and the whole thing died in 4 days of bacterial wilt so u mightwant to watch out for those
