Meanwhile I'm working to get things ready, arranging rooms to stay in, equipment, getting the kashrut guy to come tell us the olive orchard is pickable (!) and not to pick olives from the youngest trees , and generally getting excited. Can you feel it?
The yield isn't too great. The Nabali and Suri trees are nice and loaded, but the Shimlali and Barnea olives vary from few to non-existent. Such is nature. I think we'll harvest at least 5 tons of olives. Any bets?
