Yellow Vine / Leaves

Some of my pumpkins have yellow vines and leaves. Any suggestions? I live in Washington so they are planted in clay soil. I dug holes 2-3 feet wide and filled them with a manure, compost and potting soil mix and have given them organic fertilizer....did I overdo it with the fertilizer? It's been a cold and rainy year...powdery mildew? Some of them are okay and others are completely yellow and the little pumpkins fall off the vine.

I'm going to try fungacide (sp?) I'll let you know if it works. :)

Could it be a lack of nitrogen? I am still trying to research this, and I believe that this is the same thing that happens in other plants when they are in need of nitrogen.
