Seasons, cycles, and circles...
Each of those words seems to take on another meaning when farming. Seasons usually mean spring, summer, fall, winter. For farmers it also means plant, tend, harvest, use for winter feed, repeat.
Another example is the water cycle. Usually evaporation, condensation, precipitation. For farmers it is more like too dry...just right...too wet (and is just as unpredictable at times).
And then there are circles. Farmers can often feel as if they are spinning in circles...buy something to sell something in order to buy something to sell something:) The circle of life also takes on new meaning. The circle of life expands to include plants to animals to people; who plant, to feed animals, who in turn feed people.
One thing they all have in common is their continuous nature. They will change, but they will always change back:)
