Written from the authors perspective as an anthropologist and gardener, this work presents essays that explore how the Asian calendar has grounded her awareness of time and place. The essays also delve into memories of keeping a pet butterfly, roasting rice cakes with her children, watching whales, and pampering worms to make compost.
