The olive trees are budding, and in the next couple weeks there will be tiny white flowers opening up and getting pollinated. That will be an indication of the potential yield for the coming fall. I've been putting out compost, but besides that it's been a quiet couple months. Soon things will be getting busy mowing and weeding,followed by putting out fly traps, getting irrigation lines fixed up, and cutting new growth from the base of the trees.
This week I also planted 10 grape vines (Cabernet Sauvignon) at the edge of the olive grove. I hope this is the start of an organic vineyard.
