Phenology

First Week of October

Migrating birds include golden-crowned and rubycrowned kinglets, northern flickers, and American robins. Farmers are combining soybeans, and some have begun combining corn and cutting a fifth crop of alfalfa; Minnesota is third in soybean production and fourth in corn production nationwide. Apple growers pick Connell Red, Fireside, Haralson, and Honeygold. Dahlias, chrysanthemums, and garden roses display showy flowers. Gardeners pick ripe tomatoes and fall bearing raspberries. Lawns are still lush green.

October 3, 2015: Fall colors peaked in the Leech Lake and Grand Rapids area, and east to Hayward, Wisconsin.
