The magic olive tree
We had heard stories last year from Wiltrud about the amazing olive tree with huge olives that she found. And the story got bigger with the telling. But this year, at an undisclosed location, we found the legendary tree with the 4 cm. olives. These are untouched photos, attesting to the size of these beauties. It took four us us just to pick one up. OK, not that big, but still... We'll be packing these babies in rock salt and eating them on the first day of picking next year.
Meanwhile the picking is going great, with a week to go. Then we'll be pruning, cutting up brush, andspreading compost.
Great to read about the picking and see the big olives... we really should have take a picture of the plum-seize olive we picked last year! huge really. Jan is my witness, it is the truth...
For my lawn and for my garden i want to plant this tree with the seeds but after this that i have pay the full care on them. i like to eat and the olive oil for the massage and for the cooking is really healthful for the heart beat.
