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.
May continues to be a great month to start a new garden or to continue working in your existing garden. You can still 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 Pete’s Perennial Pleaser or you can continue to use Pete’s Potting Mix that we suggested for April’s items. If you are amending your existing garden, you can use Pete’s Cow Manure, Pete’s Kickin’ Chickin, or Pete’s Mushroom Compost.
We also have a planting tip for your okra. If you soak the okra seeds in warm water the night before you plant them, more seeds tend to germinate.
