来源:翻译公司 时间:2020-06-05 16:53

“芒种”(Grain in Ear)是中国传统二十四节气(the 24 traditional Chinese solar terms)中的第九个节气。“芒”指带芒作物的收获,如大麦、小麦等;“种”即为谷黍类作物的播种。夏收夏种都发生在这个时期,所以新一轮的农忙也开始了。

ear: the top part of a grain plant, such as wheat , that contains the seeds (谷类植物的)穗

ears of corn 玉米穗

比起前八个节气,芒种期间的降雨量仍处于增加状态,长江中下游地区即将进入梅雨季(Plum Rains season)。所以诗人赵师秀在《约客》中写道:黄梅时节家家雨,青草池塘处处蛙。这句诗正是对这个时节天气的生动描述。

Plum Rains, often occurring during June and July, refer to the long period of continuous rainy or cloudy weather. This happens to be the time for plums to ripen, which explains the origin of its name. Plum Rains is a good period for growing rice, vegetables and fruits.

“梅雨”指长时间的持续性降雨或多云天气,通常发生在六至七月间。此时正是梅子成熟的季节,所以因此得名。梅雨期是稻谷、蔬菜和水果生长的好时机。

祈祷丰收

“安苗”是安徽省南部的传统农业习俗。从明代早期开始,人们就会在芒种到来之际献上精心制作的祭品以祈求丰收。

People make different types of bread from wheat flour and color them with vegetable juice. The bread is used as a sacrificial offering to pray for a good harvest and people's safety.

人们用小麦粉制作各式各样的糕点,然后用蔬菜汁上色。人们用这些糕点上供,祈祷丰收和个人平安。
