We don't know how long Adam worked the garden before God gave him another assignment.

Archbishop Ussher took the genealogies of Genesis, assuming they were complete, and calculated all the years to arrive at a date for the creation of the earth on Sunday, October 23, 4004 B. Of course, even assuming the method was valid, such an exact date is not possible from the genealogies of the Bible (Ussher assumed all the years the patriarchs lived were exactly 365.25 days long and that they all died the day before their next birthday).
Historically, their claim comes from the work of James Ussher, Bishop in the Church of Ireland, from 1625 to 1656.
An accurate understanding of biblical genealogies is difficult, yet it is important for the understanding of Scripture.
