Way to go! It's never too late to start. Depending on the seed company, the "days" can be counted from time of transplanting seedling from germinating tray, transplanting plants into the ground, or sowing seed in the ground. While "days" should be used as a guideline, they can vary due to many factor; temperature, light, soil, nutrition and seed vigor to name a few.
