PM Mike@VAC. He will know. Also, you didn't say if you were AT or MT. That matters. Also, if you are AT you can have the baby pumpkin.

I think you have bolted with the little pumpkin. Not 100% though. Mike should be able to help you out.

I've found this page at VAC helpful. Table at the bottom has a complete list. According to it, all ATs are bolted, only difference is pumpkin size.

But I'd definitely verify with a call before spending any money....
