Phenology

Second Week of October

Enjoy the patchwork of fall colors; the golden-yellow foliage on bigtooth aspens and green ashes, the sunny yellow on wild grape and hackberry leaves, and bright reds on sumac shrubs and various maples. Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and leaf lettuce keep on growing in cool weather. You can still plant crocus, daffodil, and tulip bulbs. In northern Minnesota, black bears usually head for winter dens between September 24 and October 24.

October 8, 2016 - On the first frosty morning of the season for parts of southern Minnesota, steam fog rose from lakes and ponds, ice formed on birdbaths, and morning glories and squash were nipped by cold.
