FRUIT & VEGETABLE LIST

  • Okra
  • Peanuts
  • Popcorn
  • Crowder Peas
  • Eggplant
  • Field Peas

May is still a great month to start a new garden or raised bed; and it isn’t too late to plant all of the fruits and vegetables that we listed for you for April: cantaloupe, honey dew melon, watermelon, bell peppers, corn, cucumbers, green beans, hot peppers, lima beans, squash, tomatoes, and zucchini.  In addition to April’s items, you can now plant the following vegetables for May: crowder peas, eggplant, field peas, okra, peanuts, and popcorn.  To plant these items, we recommend using Daddy Pete’s Perennial Pleaser or Daddy Pete’s Potting Mix.  If you are amending your existing garden, you can use Daddy Pete’s Cow Manure, Daddy Pete’s Kickin’ Chickin, or Daddy Pete’s Mushroom Compost.  And as with any other month, it is always a great time to apply Daddy Pete’s Barnyard Fertilizer on your lawn or garden for a natural way to fertilize.

Okra Planting Tip: If you soak your okra seeds in warm water the night before you plant them, more seeds tend to germinate.
