FRUIT & VEGETABLE LIST

  • Black Eyed Peas

With summer approaching, June is still a good time to start a new garden or to continue making changes to your existing garden or raised beds. It is not too late to plant the following fruits and vegetables that we listed in April and May: cantaloupe, honey dew melon, watermelon, corn, cucumbers, field peas, green beans, okra, peanuts, peppers, popcorn, squash, and tomatoes. In addition to these items, the month of June is the ideal time to plant black-eyed peas, pumpkins, and sweet potatoes. To plant these June items, we recommend using Daddy Pete’s Cow Manure, Daddy Pete’s Kickin’ Chickin, or Daddy Pete’s Lawn & Garden Soil mixed in with your existing soil. And as with any other month, it is always a great time to apply Daddy Pete’s Pelleted Barnyard Fertilizer on your lawn or garden for a natural way to fertilize throughout the summer months.
