Plant These Veggies This Month for a Fall Harvest

Welcome to Daddy Pete’s Plant Pleaser, where our mission is to help you grow…one plant, one garden, one lawn at a time.

As pioneer men and women cultivating your own lawns and gardens to grow your own fruits and vegetables, we offer recipes to help you bring your harvest from your garden…to your kitchen…to your dinner table.

So let your inner farm out…jump into our website and indulge in our knowledge. Come discover farming through the eyes of Daddy Pete’s. Timeless products…unparalleled quality…our goal is to become more and more creative, so that our creativity equals your increase.


VEGETABLE LIST

  • Brussel Sprouts

  • Garlic

If you ran out of time in August, the month of September is still a great time to plant the following Fall harvest items: broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, collard greens, lettuce, mustard greens, onions, radishes, spinach, and turnip greens. In addition, you can plant the following two new items for September: brussel sprouts and garlic. Daddy Pete’s Potting Mix and Daddy Pete’s Raised Bed Mix work well for planting any or all of these items.  And for top dressing these same items, Daddy Pete’s Barnyard Fertilizer is an excellent way to naturally fertilize your plants.  If you are amending your existing soil, Daddy Pete’s Cow Manure and Daddy Pete’s Lawn & Garden Soil work as incredible soil amendments to your existing soil.

In addition to planting your Fall vegetables, don’t forget that September is a good month for transplanting perennials, planting Fall bulbs for next year, prepping and sowing lawns, patching lawns, and for taking soil samples to confirm the best method of fertilization for your lawn. You can also over-seed with rye grass for a green cover for the winter months.  Daddy Pete’s Sandy Loam Top Soil is a great product for sowing and patching lawns.

As with any month of the year, September is also a good month for fertilizing your lawn with Daddy Pete’s Barnyard Fertilizer. This is our pelleted lawn and garden fertilizer that consists of Daddy Pete’s Composted Cow Manure and Daddy Pete’s Composted Chicken Manure. It can be applied all 4 seasons of the year, and it is safe for pets and children. This all-natural fertilizer adds organic matter to your lawn and garden, and it will not burn your lawn during the warmer, drier months. You can apply our Barnyard Fertilizer with a broadcast spreader by placing your setting to fully open or 1 position back from fully open.
