Welcome to Daddy Pete’s Plant Pleaser, where our mission is to help you grow… We have created this portion of our website to help provide you with more insight into our products, which can help you grow healthy fruits and vegetables that will go from your garden to your kitchen. Once you grow your own healthy fruits and vegetables and bring them into your kitchen, we have provided some recipe options for bringing these home-grown items to your dinner table.
The Daddy Pete process begins with composting the manure from the cows on our dairy. We then take that composted manure and use it to make the mixes that will help grow your plants and your lawn. For the purpose of helping you grow your own garden, we will provide a list of fruits and vegetables that should be planted each month; the Daddy Pete’s product that should be used in planting them; and recipe options for preparing them.
So come on…jump into our website and indulge in our knowledge. Come discover gardening through the eyes of Daddy Pete’s. Our goal is to become more and more creative so that our creativity equals your increase.
November is a time to reflect on the year and all that we are thankful for in our lives; and is also a time to begin considering dinner options for your time with family and friends. Perhaps you have traditional family recipes, but need a few other options to add to your list. Or maybe you are preparing your first Thanksgiving feast, and you are looking for ideas to get your kitchen creativity jump-started. Regardless of where you are with Thanksgiving dinner planning, we have provided some recipe options below that will allow you to use some of the items you planted and harvested during the year.
From pumpkin butterscotch muffins for breakfast; to parmesan brussel sprouts for a pre-dinner appetizer; to a feast that begins with broccoli salad; and then moves to sides that compliment your turkey or ham, such as green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, squash casserole, and sweet potato casserole; to a sweet finishing touch of candied pecans and pumpkin pie.
If you have time among all of the Thanksgiving festivities to work in your yard, November is a great month for pruning deciduous trees, planting spring bulbs, amending beds for spring planting, or refreshing raised beds. For these projects, we recommend using Daddy Pete’s Composted Cow Manure and Daddy Pete’s Planting Mix.
