Help me out. I planted four atlantic giant pumpkins this year and they are going great They are close to producing flowers any time now but i was just watering one when the bucket fell and landed on one of the pumpkins main vein near the spot it goes underground i hear a small snap and quickly removed the bucket. the main vein has been cut almost half to 3 fourths through. This is my first year and im goin for size not weight but im afraid even if it recovers most of the nutrient wont be able to get through the main vine. What can I do?
