Microseason #24 of 72: 麦秋至 “Wheat ripens and is harvested” [110/365]

The eighth 節気 “sekki” division of the traditional Japanese calendar is:

小満
(しょうまん)
“shōman”
‘lesser ripening’ // ‘grain full’ (solar term)

The third “kō” microseason within this division is:

麦秋至
(むぎ の とき いたる)
“mugi no toki itaru”
Wheat ripens and is harvested

That makes 麦秋至 the twenty-fourth microseason of the year!

It typically lasts 31 May ~ 5 June.
