Phenology

Fourth Week of August

Gather ripe red and yellow fruit from American wild plum trees, which can be eaten raw, cooked as sauce, or made into a jam or jelly. Dahlias, glads, and garden roses are blooming nicely. Gardeners harvest beans, beets, carrots, eggplants, ground cherries, leeks, muskmelons, watermelons, squash, potatoes, cabbages, tomatoes, and sweet corn. Ragweeds are shedding large quantities of pollen.

August 22, 2015: The last eastern bluebird young fledged from a trail made up of 135 pairs of nesting boxes along 40 miles of roads in the Faribault area. The trail, developed and attended by Keith Radel, produced 730 young bluebirds that flew into the nearby environment this season.
