The 2011 Solar Lunar Calendar
Time In a Circle...
This unique, useful and decorative wall calendar, in production since 1977, places the 365 days of the year on a circle, in a graphic representation of the cyclical nature of the passage of time. Designed primarily to aid gardening, farming, and other household activities, the Solar Lunar Calendar also serves to orient us all to the cycles of the Moon, Sun and Earth. The ancient formulas are reproduced in modern format with a blend of artistry and precision, showing the sun and moon sign changes, moon phases, and significant solar and lunar eclipses for each day of the year. The Hebrew lunar months add emphasis to the new moons, helping us orient to lunar timekeeping. In addition, the planting and harvesting key quickly and easily pin points the most favorable times to plant vegetables, root crops and flowers, and when to reap the harvest. This garden guide, along with the beauty and appeal of this temporal, yet eternal cyclical mandala, keeps this 19" x 25" poster calendar in demand well into the growing season.
The Calendar Plant/Harvest Guide includes:
-The best and favorable days to plant flowers.
-The best and favorable days to plant root crops, bulbs, and trees.
-The best days to plant for above ground growth, to graft, transplant, prune, or irrigate.
-The best days to harvest crops for drying or storage.
-The best days to cultivate, destroy noxious growths, or cut wood!
