I started Squash & Eggplant from seed in my SFG..GOOD NEWS//they sprouted in 6 days...Bad news//I don't know if I'm supposed to thin them.....to me it looks like 2 separate seeds germinated in each but maybe it's supposed to look this way on a single plant....I know sometime your supposed to thin so same plants dont compete in a single sq.....Please advise & thanks in advance! God Bless!

Yep, you have twins! The squash is easy to thin. Snip the smaller one. The eggplant, I'd wait until I could tell if both are definitely EP before removing one.
