My plants today. This year I can clearly see the advantage of double planting (same site, same seed, the two strongest plants out of 3 or 4 seedlings went into the patch next to each other). In case of the 706 Wagler it was very hard to tell the difference between the two plants around mid May, but now I can see that one of the two plants seems to be a bit more aggressive (two excellent plants though, same color of the vine, similar development of secondaries, both of them show the first female in the main vine tip, and the baby pumpkins are very similar to one another both in color and shape and stem length, as far as I can see it right now). In case of the 1803 Hoelke it is easy to tell which plant will be removed soon (it is much shorter and it had developed some sections of flat main vine, although not turned into a ribbon vine plant yet).
