Post Harvest Dates 
When buying plants do the harvest date on the plant include the time the plant has spent growing up to that point. For example I bought some tomato plants with 78 days to harvest. Is that from the time I put it in the ground or from the time they started the seed?

Post DTM for Tomatoes 
Normally for tomatoes this is calculated from transplant date.

General rule of thumb is things that are started indoors are from time of transplant.
Items that are generally planted from seed DTM is from planting date.

Days to Maturity is something I have been researching lately and it has many variables.

For my region, I generally add a month to many DTMs on seed packages because I get more fog then sunshine.
