Harvesting

Times

Grains

Visit your field and sow your wheat and barley. Your wheat and barley are sowed in the month of December. The wheat and barley are sowed  adjacent to each other in a triangular shape  called a  Rosh Tur. We sow it 6 meters away from the grape Kerem in order to fulfill the mitzvot of abstaining from  the following  3 negative commandments.

1. Planting Kilaim with seeds

2. Planting Kilaim in a Kerem

3. Not eating  from Kilaim.  

 

There can be 2  reaping times. The first reaping  for barley and wheat for animals before Passover and the second for wheat on Shavuot. We welcome you to join and reap and fulfill the 3 Mitzvot: Leket, Shichacha and Peah.

Each one of these 3 mitzvot contains 2 separate mitzvot within it according to the Rambams’ Sefer Hamitzvot.

After the produce is picked you can do the mitzvot of Trumah Gdola, Maaser Rishon, Trumot Maaser, Maaser Sheni or Maaser Ani.

( 5781/2021 will be Maaser Ani.).

There is also a mitzva not to switch the order of Trumot and Maasrot . 

The Mitzva of Chala  d’oraisa  in Israel can be done after  turning the wheat into flour. You can be there for the process.

Other Fruits

Dates - July 

Figs - end of June and beginning of July

Oranges - November till March 

Pomegranates - before Rosh Hashanah 

Olives - October  

Mango - July - October 

Lulav, Etrog, Aravot - before Succot

In the Shmita Year the Rambam  lists 7 Mitzvot  to do with grapes, trees, land , and sfichim. We will be careful to keep all these mitzvot  while maintaining  the field  and opening it to the public.

Fruit Trees

Fruit trees have all the mitzvot of separating Trumot and Maasrot  like grains. They also have the Mitzva to leave Peah and possibly Shichacha.

Grapes

Unique to the grapes will be the mitzvot of  leaving Peret and Oleilot.  This will happen in  August – October if you want to produce wine or grape juice or April to November  if  you want grapes  for food.

As a craftsman designs clothing for a body in the shape of its physical structure. So did Hashem make our body as clothing for our souls in the shape of our soul’s spiritual structure -with 248 limbs and 365 channels. The spiritual food for this structure comes through fulfilling the torah of 613 commandments. Every limb is fed through a particular commandment which relates to it. If a person is missing a mitzva, the spiritual limb which relates to it will also be lacking.
