August is here and summer will be coming to an end soon; so now is a good time to plant these Fall vegetables: beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, collard greens, lettuce, mustard greens, onions, radishes, spinach, sweet peas, turnip greens, and turnips. We can help you create an amazing fall harvest of these vegetables by using Daddy Pete’s Potting Mix or Daddy Pete’s Raised Bed Mix for your planting.  If you are amending your existing soil to plant these items, we recommend using Daddy Pete’s Cow Manure, Daddy Pete’s Kickin’ Chickin, or Daddy Pete’s Lawn & Garden Soil as your soil amendment.

As with any month of the year, August is a good month for fertilizing your lawn with Daddy Pete’s Barnyard Fertilizer. This is our pelleted lawn and garden fertilizer that consists of Daddy Pete’s Composted Cow Manure and Daddy Pete’s Composted Chicken Manure. It can be applied all 4 seasons of the year, and it is safe for pets and children. This all-natural fertilizer adds organic matter to your lawn and garden, and it will not burn your lawn during the summer months. You can apply our Barnyard Fertilizer with a broadcast spreader by placing your setting to fully open or 1 position back from fully open.  You can also use Barnyard Fertilizer to top dress your Fall container plants or hanging baskets.

It's Not Too Late to Plant These Fruits and Vegetables in June!

Welcome to Daddy Pete’s Plant Pleaser, where our mission is to help you grow…one plant, one garden, one lawn at a time.

As pioneer men and women cultivating your own lawns and gardens to grow your own fruits and vegetables, we offer recipes to help you bring your harvest from your garden…to your kitchen…to your dinner table.

So let your inner farm out…jump into our website and indulge in our knowledge. Come discover farming through the eyes of Daddy Pete’s. Timeless products…unparalleled quality…our goal is to become more and more creative, so that our creativity equals your increase.


FRUIT & VEGETABLE LIST

  • Black Eyed Peas

  • Pumpkin

  • Sweet Potatoes

Summer is fast approaching and the heat is already here. Regardless of the hot weather though, June is still a good time to start a new garden or to continue making changes to your existing garden or raised beds. It is not too late to plant the following fruits and vegetables that we listed in April and May: cantaloupe, honey dew melon, watermelon, corn, cucumbers, field peas, green beans, okra, peanuts, peppers, popcorn, squash, and tomatoes. In addition to these items, the month of June is the ideal time to plant black-eyed peas, pumpkins, and sweet potatoes. For these June items, we recommend using Daddy Pete’s Cow Manure, Daddy Pete’s Kickin’ Chickin, or Daddy Pete’s Lawn & Garden Soil mixed in with your existing soil.

And don’t forget, it is always a great time to apply Daddy Pete’s Barnyard Fertilizer on your lawn or garden for a natural way to fertilize throughout the summer months. It is a pelleted fertilizer, so you can use a broadcast spreader and keep nutrients on your lawn or garden any time during the summer. It won’t burn your lawn and it is safe for children and pets. Barnyard Fertilizer also works well for top-dressing your flowers or vegetables in your raised beds, gardens, or containers. And just a reminder that Daddy Pete’s Roasted Sawdust is an excellent, dry bedding for dogs, horses, goats, and other livestock animals.
