HELP!!!!! Watermelon

Well, I was out weed wacking and I cut the last 4" off one of my watermelon plants. They are about 5' long. Will it continue to grow or is it going to "bush out"?

It will be OK either way. Don't fret.

I was wondering the same thing. I got both melons and cukes and they arte growing more than I anticipated despite making good room for them. Most of the vines have grown up the trellises but they are also have vines wandering away. I don't want them taking over some areas and was thinking about clipping these stray vines.
