Tiny green sprouts for all the varieties. Not much to photograph, though.

I used the wet paper towel method. Then I used tweezers to place 2-5 geminatined seeds in each cell of Black Gold Seedling Mix. I'm excited about the potential of each of the varieties.

"One for the cutworm- one from the crow- one for the blackbird and one to grow."
It's always wise to raise extra seedlings of each variety. Back in the day, tobacco farmers often planned for 50% replacement of failed transplants. For years, I've started more or less 25% extra per variety (rounded to the next 4-cell pack). On rare occasions, 25% was not enough.
