Long Island Cheese Pumpkin growing

A friend donated some seedlings, labeled "Long Island Cheese". Which. Is very confusing. Turns out it's a type of pumpkin. And several months later, one plant produced 3 pumpkins. 'Was going to be 4, but one got damaged early on and rotted out. 1 was reasonable small, maybe only 5-ish pounds. the other two, well...they're real chonkers.

The vines, being winter squash, crawl 10-15' across the garden. Very pretty, but easily shades out lots of the vegetables around them. Next year, I'm thinking of growing them in a different spot completely.
