20100108 - Friday Olive Tree Blogging

I should have posted this last year but I never got a round tuit until today (when I realized that a CD was good enough as a tuit - ha ha). This is what a hair under 13 litres of oil looks like and is the output of 72 kg of olives picked over 4-5 days from some of our trees.

We had a very good crop this year and I made absolutely no attempt to pick every last olive - in fact I skipped some of our trees and we only really worked on two or three to get almost every last olive from them.
