Looks like a Bonnet to me. Sort of similar to a B. Goat as well.

They look good to me. I'd say it's time to pot up and give them some light.

I hope you have better luck with Baker Creek than I did. Out of the 6 varieties that I ordered, 4 were not the correct variety and one was a complete no-show. Anyway, Im contemplating doing something similar next year, so I will be following your progress. Good luck on the upcoming season!

In Topic: Material for DIY Fabric Pots?

Thanks for the info. I used black fabric pots last year. I wasn't happy about the water usage of the 7 gallon pots, mostly due to this ridiculous southern heat, but the larger 50 gallon bags held moisture very well. I think I watered my YBS 3 or 4 times in about 5 months! Also, it was hard to deny the air pruning benefits once I pulled the plants and got a look at the roots. I think I will go with white or beige this year and plan to keep them on the larger side with a raised bed-type structure using a crate that I got from work.

In Topic: My Method for Starting Seeds

I use this same method. Saves a lot of time opening bags and unfolding paper towels to check for sprouts. It seems that I always have a few stubborn varieties that don't want to germinate uncovered, so I will throw a layer of paper towel on those to get them to pop.
