      Winter months is rainy season, that’s when the water is collected in preparation for the growing season.

      The winter season is the time when the ground water recharges and when the grain fields are plowed and planted and the grain matures in the field and the summer wind helps blow the chaff downward and away from the grain that you will collect.

      When it rains they plant or the grain cycle commences. They also collect when it is in abundance, which is during the Winter months.

      The early rains soften the dirt so that it can be plowed.
      The middle rains wet the dirt where the wheat is planted allowing it to germinate and grow.
      The late rains give the wheat the moisture it needs for the grain kernels to mature.

      The winter rains mark the beginning of the grain cycle. Grains are plowed and planted from October through March. The grain matures in the field to be harvested in the spring. Without the winter rains, there would be no harvest.

      The rainfall only happens during a certain part of the year and that determines when to plant and when to harvest grain.

      Grain needs water to be planted and to grow and because it rains in the winter it allows for the grain crop to grow and then to dry out for harvesting in the summer

      There is rainfall in the winter months that allow grain to be planted and grow. In the summer months, the crops are harvested.

      The beginning of the grain agriculture is in the winter during the rainy season. The grain fields are plowed and planted.

      Early rain starts in October so November and December are time to sow barley first, then wheat. When the end of Winter around March, barley was harvested first, then about fifty days the harvest of wheat is completed. So Passover is in March and Shavuot is in May (Pentecost). Early rain, late rain; and early grain (barley), late grain (wheat) kind of rhythm together.

      When the rains come then the grain agricultural cycle can begin. In ancient Israel, this was in the Winter season between October and April. There was lower humidity and pressure, and regular cycles of precipitation, low pressure.

      Rain falls in the winter months and this is when grain crops are planted and tended.

      The wet winter season in Israel runs from October to April, and 82% of Israel’s rain falls from December to February, with the northern part receives most of the rainfall. Therefore, the winter is when the ground is filled with water, which is also ideal for cultivating grains. Summer month is the harvest month as the Mediterranean Sea breeze will help them separate the grain kernel from the chaff.
