VEGETABLES TO PLANT

  • Onion

  • Radishes

  • Beets

  • Carrots

  • Lettuce

We are in the midst of January, and now is a great time to begin preparations for spring planting. This is also a good month for starting seeds indoors on broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, and cauliflower so they will be ready for early February transplants. Daddy Pete’s Potting Mix and Daddy Pete’s Pete Lite Mix are the best mixes for taking care of these seeds. During this month, you can also freshen your raised beds with Daddy Pete’s Raised Bed Mix, and amend your existing soils with Daddy Pete’s Composted Cow Manure. Don’t forget to buy your seeds this month for early spring planting and clean and service your garden tools. At the end of January, you can plant beets, carrots, lettuce, onions, and radishes in your amended soil, and add ¼” of Daddy Pete’s Composted Cow Manure or Daddy Pete’s Barnyard Fertilizer as a top dressing after planting.

You can also fertilize your yard with Daddy Pete’s Barnyard Fertilizer.  It is a slow release, pelleted fertilizer that will not burn your lawn, can be applied any time of the year, and is safe for children and pets. And don’t forget your furry friends during the winter months. Daddy Pete’s Roasted Sawdust is an excellent, dry bedding for dogs, horses, goats, and other livestock animals.
