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.
If you weren’t able to plant your Fall vegetables in August, the month of September is still a great time to plant the following items: broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, collard greens, lettuce, mustard greens, onions, radishes, spinach, and turnip greens. Pete’s Potting Mix and Pete’s Raised Bed Mix work well for planting these items. And for top dressing these items, Pete’s Organic Fertilizer is an excellent way to naturally fertilize your plants. If you are amending your existing soil, Pete’s Cow Manure works as an incredible soil amendment 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.
