'Days to harvest' info put out by seed companies
Is it just me, or have others planted vegetables that don't seem to mature in the amount of time advertised on seed packets? For instance, a month ago, I planted some radishes. On the package, it said "25-30 days." Does that start from the time you plant the seeds, or from the time they germinate? Either way, the radishes aren't even close to being ready. The leaves have come up nicely, but the "bulbs" are just tiny. I would say that they need at least 3 more weeks. I've had this same problem with other vegetables too. Do seed companies tend to exaggerate how quickly their seeds will turn into mature vegetables?
