Collecting milkweed pods
MASSILLON – The Stark Soil and Water Conservation District will collect milkweed pods in cooperation with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and the Ohio Pollinator Habitat Initiative.
Follow these tips when collecting:
- Before harvesting, familiarize yourself with common milkweed to avoid harvesting pods from similar plants.
- Pick up the pods when they are dry, gray or brown. It is important to verify this. Since the pod collection begins on September 1 and ends on October 31, use September as the time period to locate milkweed plants and to keep an eye on the pods as they ripen, and then pluck them once they are they turn brown.
- If the center seam bursts with light pressure, they can be harvested.
- Store the pods in paper bags; plastic bags collect unwanted moisture. Put the collected date and county on the bag when you return them and try to keep the pods in a cool, dry place until you can drop them off at the office at 2650 Richville Drive SE, Suite 100, Massillon, between 8 h and 4 h. : 30 h
