Pinching Watermelon/Canteloupe Vines

As we were very wet until July st we didn't get into the garden to plant until July 4th-5th. The watermelon are just starting to vine ; would it hurt to pinch the ends of the plants/OR leave less flowers to grow into melons,( before long), to produce less fruit but more regular size ones?
I should add that the Watermelon we plant is "Bush Sugar Baby" which the maturity date is 65 days.
The Cantaloupe we planted is either Ambrosia (approx. 88 days) and "Moneyloupe (which is 72 days).

Thank You very much for your input and for trying to answer my question!

Repair of 1890 limestone foundation

My house has a limestone foundation that has mortar that isn't there or is the consistency of sand. On the inside of the foundation where it is the worst, the previous owner has put a lot of something white. It looks like the cement or putty so at least I can't see holes for the rodents to come in. Any advice you can give me will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
