A realistic plant tag!

Post  boffer on 5/12/2010, 11:41 pm

How long does it take a veggie to mature? It just depends. I wish the days listed on seed packages were more realistic so newer gardeners wouldn't take them as the gospel truth. I got a chuckle when I saw this tag listing a 30 day range.

HAHA yeah my radishes lil envelope said they'd be ready in 3 weeks. I don't think so. They're like little taproots right now, but the one my 4 year old picked was already spicy for sure. We nipped off a bit to taste and his eyes got huge. I could tell he was not expecting the heat.
I'm really interested in my peas and beans as I've never grown the varieties I have. It'll be fun watching them progress.

Have you all noticed that the time on the packets or tags is always shorter than the actual? Never longer. I guess we just must learn patience.

Why don't they just say, "sometime this summer"?

HAHahaha Claire I love it! Can you imagine the garden log of a newbie if the packets said that....?
"It's 4:15pm..... the squash has only grown 0.253 centimeters since noon.... WHY CAN't it GO Faster?!"
