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.
Fruits & Pete's Planting Mix
When it comes to fruit, March is a great time for planting fruit bushes and fruit trees. Pete’s Planting Mix is the perfect product to use for planting the following items: apples, blackberries, blueberries, figs, grapes, nectarines, peaches, pears, plums, raspberries, and strawberries. Once you have planted these bushes and trees using our Planting Mix, we suggest using Pete’s Composted Cow Manure as a mulch around the surface area of the plant. Where applicable, make sure you stay away from the trunk of the bush or tree approximately 12 inches all the way around it.
