Crops in the winter too, in any climate? Possibly during the ice age? Plato specifically mentions winter crops, and winter rains (like the winter monsoons.)
Twice in the year they gathered the fruits of the earth - in winter having the benefit of the rains of heaven, and in summer the water which the land supplied by introducing streams from the canals.
