Welcome to the month of September, which is still a great time to plant the following Fall harvest items from August: broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, collard greens, lettuce, mustard greens, onions, radishes, spinach, and turnip greens. In addition, you can plant two new items for September: brussel sprouts and garlic. Daddy Pete’s Potting Mix and Daddy Pete’s Raised Bed Mix work well for planting any or all of these items. And for top dressing these same items, Daddy Pete’s Barnyard Fertilizer is an excellent way to naturally fertilize your plants. If you are amending your existing soil, Daddy Pete’s Cow Manure, Daddy Pete’s Kickin’ Chickin, and Daddy Pete’s Lawn & Garden Soil are wonderful soil amendments.
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. Daddy Pete’s Sandy Loam Top Soil is a great product for sowing and patching lawns.
As with any month of the year, September 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 warmer, drier 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.
