Colorful crops, such as corn, red chili,  chrysanthemum flowers,  cattail leaves are dried in bamboo baskets in the Huangling village in East China's Jiangxi Province , which marked liqiu, or the beginning of autumn in the Chinese lunar calendar. The tradition of shaiqiu, or drying crops in autumn, has now become a symbol of local custom and is a highlight of local tourism.
