transplants and harvest dates. . .

Post  happyfrog on 4/1/2010, 7:03 pm

I am confused - (not hard, lol)

i am growing from seed some plants this year that i will trnasplant.

here's my question.

my cherry tomato (for example)

says harvest in 55-60 days.

is that from date of planting in the ground or from date of planting seed?

or from date of germination?

can you tell i'm new at gardening?

here's the stats on this particular plant:

seed started 13 march
germinated 15-20 days later (actually some germinated in less than a week!)
won't be transplanting to the ground til mid-end of may (zone 5).

hoping an experienced gardener can help with this - i'm sure i'm not the only person who has/will have this kind of question.

thanks in advance for the assistance!

Days to harvest in my exp reffers to when they are transplanted into the garden the seed packets are a little vague when it comes to topics like this i did alot of research last season and as far as tomatoes goes this is what i have found to be useful information
http://www.growing-tomato.com/
if you search the site there is alot of valuable information on other vegtables as well, im getting ready to pot my tomatoes up as they are a little leggy and i have found that potting them up kinda slows the top growth and makes the plant concentrate more on root development

what a neat site! i've been reading it for the last hour, lol.

and thanks for insights into the plant harvest dates. it does make sense.

now i won't be too eager to be eating veg/fruit in early may. . .
