Pumpkin ponderings - will they ripen? What's wrong with the leaves? (etc)

Looks like it to me too.  I'd ease them up gently and plant them out where you can space them out a bit more.

I had some pop up this year in my Wilderness border behind the pond - goodness knows where they came from, and they didn't really look right there, but I didn't have they heart to pull them up until they'd gone over
