20091204 - Friday Olive Tree Blogging

The harvest begins. So far we've picked about 35 kg of olives. We've delivered them to the mill to be added to the general stock and in return we'll get about 3.5 litres of oil back. Actually it takes about 8kg of olives to make a litre of oil but the mill keeps a portion as its price for milling them. I expect we'll pick some more olives tomorrow and end up delivering 55-60kg of olives and thus getting some 5-6l of oil.
