It is somewhat eairly,but what is ment by the time on the seed packets ?
I have been growing tomatoes for many years and always bought the plants from a green house. Never paid attention to the times, just planted near mid April and pulled them off about the 1 st of July or so. This year I am going to try it from the seeds.
Some of the packets have times such as 52 days and 70 days. The the growing instructions say start about 6 to 8 weeks before moving outside. The 52 day plants would already have tomatoes on them if I wait 8 weeks before moving outside. That does not seem right. Even the 70 day ones would be way too big if that is the case.
Would it be more like that after the plants get big enough to move outside that time would start ?
