November 29th Harvest Update
After some great rains, with a total of over 100 mm, we were back at it, trying to get the last of the olives harvested. We've topped 10 tons, with about 3 tons still left to pick. The rains caused some fruit to drop, but nothing too serious. In about 10 days we should pack up the last load, and start pruning the trees. Here are some more photos of the great folks who helped. Sorry there isn't a photo of everyone. Send me your pictures, guys.
Another picking season, and another great group of people have joined us. Some for a few days, some for a few weeks. the yield is amazing- probably our 2nd best ever. So far we've gotten 7 tons picked (as of Nov. 17th), with probably another 5 or 7 to go. Thanks to everyone who are making this such fun, even when it's ________ (fill in the blank- hot, raining, cold, early, buggy, thorny, noisy, quiet, sunny, heavy... )
